The League of Women Voters of New Hampshire and four college students, represented by the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union, sued the state yesterday, alleging that newly implemented voter registration requirements effectively create a poll tax and prevent students from voting.
At issue is not a new requirement that voters present a photo ID or sign an affidavit at the polls, which the League and others say caused confusion and consternation across the state Tuesday.
