Lawyers representing two Dartmouth College students who challenged a New Hampshire law that required voters to be full-fledged residents of the state withdrew their federal lawsuit Friday, two days after the state supreme court weighed in on a judge’s questions.

The law, which took effect last July, ended state law distinctions between “residency” and “domicile.” The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire, which sued the secretary of state and attorney general last year, said the law created confusion and burdened the students’ right to vote. The state said any confusion is “self-created and sustained.”
