CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Senate may create a new legislative committee to deal specifically with election law.

Election law includes bills related to voting rights, which are poised to be a major issue of debate in the upcoming session. Republicans have said they want to eliminate same day voter registration and enact a residency requirement for voting eligibility.

Senators will vote on a set of rules for the upcoming session, including committees, when the Legislature convenes Wednesday for “organization day.”

The Republican-controlled Senate proposes creating a Committee on Election Law and Internal Affairs. In past session, many election law related bills have started in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The House already has a specific election law committee.
