“Your Vote Is Your Voice: How Will the New NH Voter Law Affect You?" - 4:30 PM on Monday, Oct. 22



A raging debate currently ongoing in New Hampshire politics is the implementation of the new New Hampshire voting law. Under this law, college students wishing to vote would be required to sign a statement that they intend to switch their permanent state residency to New Hampshire.

UNH Professor of Law John Greabe will address this law, and exactly what effects it would have on Dartmouth students who wish to have their voice heard in upcoming democratic elections. He will address the partisan motivations behind the law, the viability of its implementation, and what it means for the future of elections in New Hampshire and nationwide.

John Greabe is a Professor of Law at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, where he has taught Constitutional Law, First Amendment Law, Civil Procedure, Conflict of Laws, and Judicial Opinion Writing.  His scholarship focuses on constitutional law, civil rights, and federal jurisdiction, and has appeared in the Columbia Law Review, the Notre Dame Law Review, the Boston University Law Review, Constitutional Commentary, and the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal.  Earlier this year, his paper "A Federal Baseline for the Right to Vote" was published in the Columbia Law Review's Sidebar.  Before joining UNH Law, Professor Greabe taught at Vermont Law School and served as a law clerk to a number of federal judges within the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

Please join us for UNH Law Professor John Greabe’s talk, “Your Vote Is Your Voice:  How Will the New NH Voter Law Affect You?” at Rockefeller 003 at 4:30 pm, October 22, 2012.
