Judge rules voter residency law unconstitutional

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire judge has struck down as unconstitutional a 2012 law that effectively blocks out-of-state students and others from voting in New Hampshire unless they establish legal residency in the state.

The New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union filed a petition on behalf of four out-of-state college students two years ago, arguing the law freezes out eligible voters from participating in the upcoming state and federal elections.

A judge issued a preliminary order blocking enforcement of the law. Thursday's ruling makes that order permanent.

The law required people registering to vote to sign a statement saying they declare New Hampshire their domicile and are subject to laws that apply to all residents, including laws requirements to register cars and get a New Hampshire driver's license.
