V. Legislative Updates
District of Columbia: The Council of the District of Columbia has voted unanimously to reject the White House’s request for voter data. The bill makes it illegal for the D.C. Board of Elections to provide the presidential commission with information about voters other than what is already publicly available.
Georgia: According to media reports, legislation to require any new voting machines purchased by the state to have a paper trail has picked up bipartisan support. House Bill 641 was filed by Rep. Scott Turner (R-Holly Springs) and has received the support of Rep. Scott Holcomb (D-Atlanta) who hopes to push the bill through so new machines can be in place by 2018.
New Hampshire: Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has signed Senate Bill 3 into law. The new law requires those who register within 30 days of an election or on Election Day to show proof that they live in the communities they claim as their domiciles.
