CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire's undeclared voters would no longer be able to vote in a Republican or Democratic Party primary and then immediately switch back to being undeclared at the polls under a bill up for a vote in the House.

A majority of the Election Law Committee recommends stopping the practice of letting the voters switch back and instead is backing a bill that would bar changing status for 90 days after a state or presidential primary.

The bill also would require undeclared voters to follow the same procedures to change registration as voters whose affiliations were declared prior to voting.

The House could vote on the bill this week.
