DURHAM, N.H. - Former President Bill Clinton is telling college students in the battleground state of New Hampshire that they have the right to vote either where they attend school or at home.

Clinton took aim at the state's disputed new voter registration law while campaigning for President Barack Obama at the University of New Hampshire. He told students that Republicans are trying to take away their right to vote.

The law requires new voters to sign a statement saying that they are subject to laws that apply to all residents, including car registration and driver's license laws. Out-of-state college students have challenged it, and the matter remains unsettled five weeks before the election.

Republican legislative leaders in New Hampshire have complained that out-of-state college students are diluting the vote of legal residents.
