New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary makes history every four years, and on Feb. 9 it will do so for an additional reason.
This year, for the first time, primary voters will have to show ID.
"I think there are definitely going to be lines, with any indication of our absentee balloting already -- it’s huge," said Kerri Parker, the town clerk of Meredith, N.H., and president of the New Hampshire Town and City Clerks Association.
"People are concerned, they want to get out, they want their voice to be heard, which is great," she said, but cautioned that "the only thing they need to remember is to bring their ID's to the polls. … We have to see your ID because of voter fraud."
