    Redistricting Public Hearings Across the State

    Take part in public "listening sessions" by the NH House and NH Senate around the state.   One hearing is being held before the maps are drawn, and we're advocating for a second round of hearings for the public to analyze the finished maps.   Why?  Because we're suspicious of anti-voter faction members within the committee who may be scheming a gerrymandered Congressional district map.  

    Get involved!  Speak up! 

    Other important issues:

    • 62 Towns which were eligible for their own NH House district did not get it in 2011
    • NH Senate Districts ignored "communities of interest," crossing county lines, through regional high schools, and bisecting public health regions
    • NH Executive Council districts include District 2, which packs Democratic-leaning towns into one district which snakes from Vermont to Maine.
    • Some towns districted together are joined in lakes, in the middle of the woods, and in some cases force their legislators to drive out of the county to get to the other side.

    Walk this Sunday to Inform Voters About Absentee Voting

     

    PORTSMOUTH—Recent COVID-19 accommodations by New Hampshire's Secretary of State and Attorney General allow for voters to use an absentee ballot for the Sept. 8 state primary and Nov. 3 general elections. The problem is, most voters don't know that's an option.

    Sunday, July 5, volunteers with Open Democracy, a New Hampshire nonprofit which works on voting rights, money-in-politics and campaign finance reform, will be holding signs in and around Portsmouth to help spread the word, and will even have absentee ballot applications for anyone who wants one. All volunteers holding signs will be socially distanced and be wearing masks. Anyone wishing to help hold signs may meet for instructions at 2 p.m. Sunday at Lafayette Plaza, 775 Lafayette Rd, then be dispersed to other locations around the city.
