The problem with Senate Bill 3 is that it doesn’t go far enough, as explained below. That said, it is a baby-step in the right direction that can be easily improved upon, and it probably is the best that can be expected under the current RINO (Republican-in-Name-Only) legislature.
If Senate Bill 3 is defeated, which would take GOP votes, it would mean the GOP chose to make no improvements to New Hampshire’s porous voting laws, give the Democrats -who have been flat out lying about Senate Bill 3- an undeserved victory, and embolden the Democrats to escalate their voter-fraud schemes in 2018.

I previously posted about SB 3 here. In a nutshell, while the Democrats and their allies, such as the ACLU (which is essentially a Super-PAC for the Democrats) charge SB 3 is “voter suppression,” it is actually a fairly toothless tiger.
The ACLU in a recent op-ed claims that SB 3 “would effectively criminalize legitimate voters who cannot provide documentation proving where they live and cause government ‘agents’ to visit these legitimate voters.” Let’s examine those charges.
SB 3 will allow the practice of drive-by voting to continue. In 2016, there were over 7,300 instances of potential drive-by voting. More particularly, on election day 1,423 persons were allowed to vote with no photo ID at all while 5,903 were allowed to vote using out-of-State licenses. Continue reading
In February, the mainstream media (both nationally and in New Hampshire), the Democrat Party and the New Hampshire establishment-GOP (not that there is much difference substantively between them and the Democrats) all lost their minds when President Trump allegedly stated, during a meeting where no press was present, that he and former United States Senator Kelly Ayotte lost the 2016 election in New Hampshire because thousands of Democrat voters had been bused into New Hampshire from Massachusetts.
Trump was assailed for having “no evidence” that thousands of Democrat voters had been bused into New Hampshire from Massachusetts, although these same taking-heads and politicians were at the very same time demanding an investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia despite the lack of any evidence of collusion. “Fact-checkers” proclaimed Trump’s claim “false”.
This is the brilliance of Trump. While it is not literally true that thousands of Democrat voters were bused into New Hampshire from Massachusetts, it is true that both the Presidential race and the United States Senate race were decided by out-of-State or drive-by voters and Trump’s tweet is finally drawing national attention to that fact.

Let’s start by defining voter fraud.
Voter fraud occurs when someone who shouldn’t legitimately vote in New Hampshire votes in New Hampshire. Only permanent residents of New Hampshire should be considered legitimate voters. If a person is residing here only for a temporary purpose, he or she shouldn’t be allowed to vote here.
For example, someone who moved to New Hampshire just to work on a political campaign shouldn’t be allowed to vote in the corresponding election. As, for example, Joe Biden’s niece did in 2012: Continue reading
