CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Organizers of a rally in support of voter rights are hoping hundreds turn out in New Hampshire, despite a spring snow storm that forced them to postpone the event by a day.
The New Hampshire March for Voting Rights was moved from Saturday to Sunday and will take place at 1 p.m. in the capital Concord. Demonstrators will march 12 miles from Concord High School to the steps of the New Hampshire statehouse in support of what they described as a "strong and fair election system."
The rally comes as the state legislature is considering scores of bills that critics say would curtail voting rights in the state, including requiring additional proof from new residents. Critics fear those changes would hurt eligible voters who are students and low-income people.
