If you’re one of the approximately 5,500 voters who didn’t show an ID at the polls in November, you’ve got mail.
You’ve likely already received a letter from Secretary of State Bill Gardner explaining that someone using your name cast a ballot on Nov. 6. Along with the letter is a small postcard, with postage already paid, that you must sign and send back confirming it was you who voted.
All of this is required by the state’s new voter ID law.
And Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan says his office estimates each mailing cost roughly $3.
New Hampshire isn’t seeing the same kind of economic growth following the recent recession as it has in the past. And as the governor and lawmakers begin to debate the next two year budget, those forecasted numbers become especially important.

That will leave some teens without social services they have come to depend on.
Starting Jan. 1, driving under the influence of prescription drugs, over the counter medications or any other chemical substances is a crime in New Hampshire.
Law enforcement officials say the change will help them prosecute drivers impaired by drugs not previously covered under state law. Lawmakers expanded the state’s driving under the influence law in 2012 and Gov. Lynch signed it into law last June.
