Starting next year, “X” can mark the gender on New Hampshire driver’s licenses.

Gov. Chris Sununu allowed House Bill 669 to become law this week without his signature. It allows driver’s licenses or non-driver identification cards to be marked “M” for male, “F” for female or “X” for other.

New Hampshire joins 12 other states and Washington D.C. in providing the third designation for “non-binary” people who do not identify as male or female. HB 669, which passed both the House and the Senate on voice votes earlier this year, takes effect Jan. 1, 2020.
