Clinton is under greater scrutiny after fellow Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., was rigged. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) by an even smaller margin (1,017 votes), with approximately 5,000 votes now being under investigation for being cast by non-New Hampshire residents.

Kobach, who also faces sanctions in Kansas for misleading a court on voting-rights issues in his home state, admitted Tuesday that it might not be "possible to condense a complicated issue in an 800-word" article. "It's very real. It's very serious. This morning, on this show, is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence".

ME secretary of state and commission member Matthew Dunlap expressed concern in the meeting that using a system for background checks could create "unintended consequences".

Convened by President Donald Trump, the 12-member held its second meeting on September 12, 2017, at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. This includes taking dubious forms of identification, or sometimes merely taking the individual's word that they're a USA citizen and resident of the state who is eligible to vote.

"Their voting suppression impact has already begun", he said on a press call organized by the Democratic National Committee. Last week, for example, the panel's co-chair, voter-suppression pioneer Kris Kobach, claimed to have uncovered "proof" of systemic fraud in New Hampshire - claims that were quickly discredited as transparent nonsense. Another suggested using the same background checks required in gun purchases for voter registration. "Now it looks like they were back in Boston in time to watch the election returns that evening".

When the conservative investigative group Project Veritas planted hidden cameras to record what went on during New Hampshire's 2016 primary, it discovered some disturbing information.

Judge Charles Temple issued his ruling early Tuesday after three hours of testimony and arguments by attorneys for the state Democratic Party and the League of Women Voters, who sought a temporary injunction barring implementation of the law, and from lawyers from the Attorney General's office, who sought to have the case dismissed. "Proof", he says, that 5,313 people who voted in New Hampshire in 2016 do not actually reside in the state. The information indicates whether a state is willing to comply with, is denying or is undecided on the request for data.

Gardner said people could live in New Hampshire, such as college students, and vote legally with an out-of-state license.

President Donald Trump in February told a group of senators that he lost New Hampshire because thousands of MA residents crossed state lines to vote.

"Using cherry-picked data in order to support a false claim is risky and irresponsible", Woodburn insisted, according to Fox News. "It is clear that this commission has but one goal-to suppress the vote and undermine voting rights".

Yesterday, New Hampshire, which has seen more than its share of hucksters over the years, welcomed another carnival barker. Instead he ended up mistakenly sending 125,000 Virginia voters a notification that wrongly claimed that they were registered to vote elsewhere.

"When pressed to explain further, many simply stated that they were provided a ballot, made their selections on the entire ballot and returned the completed ballot", he said. I think you know from the white paper we sent you that based on our experience we have thought long and hard about what needs to be done.

"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that that's proof that you robbed a bank", Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap said to applause.

But perhaps the strongest argument against the legitimacy of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, wrote The Atlantic's Vann R. Newkirk II, is the tendency for Trump and Kobach and other fraud inquisitors to make false, unverified, or disputed claims of fraudulent voting, then using those claims as evidence that anti-voter-fraud efforts are necessary, and when claims are debunked, citing that as a demonstration of the need to pursue the subject more thoroughly. "If they have established their residence in New Hampshire, they may have failed to obtain a New Hampshire driver's license".
