The N.H. House and Senate will consider a bill next week that rids the state of its participation in an embattled voter crosscheck program aimed at identifying potential fraud.

But while the current program — called the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck, commonly referred to as Crosscheck — is seen as fraught with issues, the question lawmakers wrestled with is: What should its replacement be?

But HB 315, which repeals New Hampshire’s participation in Crosscheck, does not specify a replacement, nor does it mandate the secretary of state even participate in any voter verification program.
