Exploring Expanded Voting In New Hampshire

With all the talk around a Voter ID law, which would tighten requirements for voting, others are looking to loosen the reigns. They are hoping to pass a bill in which New Hampshire would join 35 other states in  allowing for absentee balloting. Supporters say that it would address the concerns of those who find themselves too busy to vote on Election Day or may not have transportation to get to the polls. Opponents however suggest that expanding voting could possibly lead to more voter fraud. We'll look at the possibilities.

Guests:

  • Paul Gronke: Professor of political science at Reed College and Director of the Early Voting Information Center, non-partisan research center based in Portland, Oregon.
  • Dave Scanlan: New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State.
