    Twelve month waiting period and notarized statements. Wow.

    You can tell that it either received no legal review, or they were sloppy in their review. Official forms like that should not refer to “House Bills” but should instead refer to the statute itself. This doesn’t change the validity of the document, but makes me question the competence of those that drafted it.

      So, Ed, you look at these strict requirements and yet still think college definitions of residency and domicile should be applied to voting? If you move to another state (really move, by anyone’s definition), requiring a 12 month waiting period before you could vote there would be unconstitutional. A school has the ability to define residency basically however it wants, in whatever way will be most financially beneficial. That should not be the bar for which you determine someone’s eligibility to vote. You also don’t need your parents’ signed permission to vote. This kind of makes my point that it’s the school’s definition of residency that needs to change, not the Secretary of State.

        You have no point.

      It was drafted under RSA 187-A but the college trustees under JLCAR put it together.
      It is hard to pry the lid off some of this stuff for a reason but the result is the same.
      1. Under state law state colleges are required to limit non-resident students.
      2. This form is written as any other form or legal document using accepted words and phrases.
      3. The title says resident but when you sign it the legal term says domicile before the signature.
      5. In both Superior Court cases involving non-resident students, Rivers and Guare, the activist judges said college students are confused by the two words.
      Somehow the same collection of students are able to wade through the uncomplicated Residency Form provided by state colleges.
      Is this a “loophole” on this side of the argument that resident and domicile mean something opposite the legal definition and no one has to pay out-of-state tuition?
      How stupid this argument is, is hard to put into words.
      But the scam is exactly the same as “cherish” means mandatory state funded education. There is no education clause in the NH State Constitution. Period.
      Activist courts made fools of taxpayers once – so they thought they could do it with voters as well.
      If we sit by and let it happen they might be right.
      Now is the time to hold elected officials accountable.
