Five months before a controversial New Hampshire voting bill takes effect, the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal lawsuit to shut it down.

In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, the organization asked the court to stop the bill from taking effect in July, arguing that its provisions will impede on the right of college students to vote.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Concord, targets House Bill 1264, a voting residency bill signed into law last July. That bill amends the definition of resident in New Hampshire, making it so those who cast ballots in elections are effectively declaring that they intend to live in New Hampshire “for the indefinite future.”
