Court won't hear voter registration bill

The Associated Press

The New Hampshire Supreme Court has declined to weigh in on a bill tying the right to vote with registering a vehicle.

Under the bill, those who declare New Hampshire their home for voting purposes would be considered a resident for motor vehicle law purposes.

House lawmakers asked the court in March for an advisory opinion on two issues: whether the bill would violate a specific part of the state Constitution and whether it would violate any other provisions of the state or U.S. Constitution.

The court said Thursday it would not answer the first question because it will be hearing arguments this month in a case that raises very similar issues. It declined to answer the second question because it historically does not answer general questions about constitutionality.
