Gov. John Lynch on Thursday vetoed the Voter ID bill passed by the House and Senate earlier this year.
"The right to vote is a fundamental right that is guaranteed to all citizens of this State under the United States and New Hampshire Constitutions," Lynch said in his veto message. "Our election laws must be designed to encourage and facilitate voting by all eligible voters in New Hampshire."
