GrokTV Event-NH Senate hearing: Voter ID / SB289 – Testimony by NH Deputy Sec. of State David Scanlan and President Patricia of the City and Town Clerks Association, and others!

This post has all of the other testimony, pro and con, on SB289 relative to having to present a valid picture ID in order to vote in NH elections.   This first one is NH Deputy Sec. of State David Scanlan bringing the news that his department is supporting this bill and its amendment by Senator Prescott

In addition, President Patricia Piecuch of the City and Town Clerks Association was also testifying in favor of the bill (after the jump).

Also testifying were the following:

  • Doug McNutt (AARP) – in opposition
  • Skip Murphy (why, that’s ME!) – in favor
  • Melissa Madden (America Votes) – in opposition
  • Sam Langley – in opposition
  • Charles Balban (NH Alliance for Retired Americans) – in opposition
  • Ryan Donnelly (Granite State Independent Living) – in opposition
  • Michael Skibbie  (Disability Rights Center) – in opposition
  • Claire Ebel (NH Civil Liberties Union) – in opposition
  • Karen Ashwell (?) (League of Women Voters) – in opposition
  • Caitlan Rollo (Granite State Progress) – in opposition

Please note that the loud typing clacking came from the committee aide, Debra Martone, and especially from Kevin Landrigan (Nashua Telegraph); nothing I can do about it…
