NH Voter ID Law: What You Should Know Before You Vote

by Christian Mower on February 8, 2016

When voters head to the polls tomorrow they will have to do something that they have never had to do before in a primary. The first in the Nation Primary is also the first New Hampshire Primary in which voters will have to present an ID.

Voters originally just gave their name and address to get checked off the list of registered voters. The law that went into effect in 2012 requires voters to present a photo ID such as a driver’s license before being checked off the list.

Other Accepted forms of ID are:
Non-driver ID card issued by NH DMV or motor vehicle agency of another state
Photo ID card for “voting identification only” issued by NH DMV
United States armed services identification card
United States passport or passcard
NH student ID card (see more information below)
A photo ID not mentioned above, but determined to be legitimate by the moderator, supervisors of the checklist, or clerk of a town, ward or city.

The ID will remain valid 5 years beyond the expiration date unless the voter is 65 or older in which case an acceptable photo ID may be used without regard to expiration date.

Those who do not have a photo ID can still vote but they must sign a “Challenged Voter Affidavit”. In addition to the affidavit the voter then must have their picture taken. Those opposed to having their picture taken due to religious reasons can opt out by signing another affidavit stating so.

Those who fill out an affidavit will also receive a follow-up letter from the state asking them to verify they voted in the election. If a response isn’t received within 90 days, the state will investigate. Anyone found guilty of voter fraud faces a civil penalty no less than $5,000.

Wheels of Soul 2016!

by Chris on February 5, 2016


Monday, February 8 – Friday, February 12 we’re giving away win em’ before you can em’s to Wheels of Soul Summer Tour 2016…just listen for the cue to call and dial (603)356-9930, and you could be heading to Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook to see  Tedecshi Trucks Band, Los Lobos and North Mississippi AllStars, live on Saturday, July 16, 2016!

Tedeschi Trucks Band – Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, an 11-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi’s impassioned, blues-soaked vocals, the Jacksonville-based group earned a Grammy for its debut, Revelator, followed with a dynamic live double disc, Everybody’s Talkin and album Made Up Mind. With Derek Trucks having wrapped up his 15-year tenure with The Allman Brothers Band, TTB has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances with an increasing repertoire of soulful neo-classics. TTB just released their latest full album in January of 2016, Let Me Get By, which has so far been one of their favorites.

Los Lobos  have been around since 1973, the band consists of Louis Perez, Steve Berlin, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, David Hidalgo, and Enrique “Bugs” Gonzales. By their debut album How Will the Wolf Survive? (1984) they had won the Grammy award for Best Mexican-American/Trejano Music Performance. In 1987 their hit single “La Bamba” hit No. 1 on the US and UK singles chart. One year later the video had also won MTV Music video award. Four decades, two Grammy awards and almost twenty albums later Los Lobos are still rocking the albums and tours.

North Mississippi AllStars -Made up of brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, North Mississippi Allstars started in 1996. The Dickinson brothers followed their father Memphis Legend Jim Dickinson. They released their debut album Shake Hands with Shorty in 2000, which earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues album. In 2013 the North Mississippi Allstars released their new career-defining record World Boogie Is Coming. The album marked a return to the band’s blues-infused rock & roll roots and pays homage to hill country legends and songwriters like RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. World Boogie Is Coming is the record that perfectly ties it all together, fusing all the elements that have made the Allstars special while pushing the band’s sound further into the future than ever before.
