“Your Vote Is Your Voice: How Will the New NH Voter Law Affect You?" - 4:30 PM on Monday, Oct. 22

A raging debate currently ongoing in New Hampshire politics is the implementation of the new New Hampshire voting law. Under this law, college students wishing to vote would be required to sign a statement that they intend to switch their permanent state residency to New Hampshire.

UNH Professor of Law John Greabe will address this law, and exactly what effects it would have on Dartmouth students who wish to have their voice heard in upcoming democratic elections. He will address the partisan motivations behind the law, the viability of its implementation, and what it means for the future of elections in New Hampshire and nationwide.
