The Justice Department has cleared New Hampshire’s voter ID law under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. Unlike voter ID laws DOJ has challenged, voters who lack an acceptable form of photo identification will be allowed to cast a ballot if they sign an affidavit confirming their identity. 

DOJ has blocked voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas but cleared a voter ID law in Virginia.
