Take Action & Sign to Protect Your Freedom to Vote in NH

A NH Campaign for Voting Rights Petition

Endorsed by Open Democracy
In November 2020, New Hampshire voters turned out in historic record numbers to make their voices heard despite a global pandemic. Election officials, community leaders,  and voting rights advocates worked hard to ensure voters were able to safely and securely vote, and as a result eligible voters from both sides of the aisle were able to use expanded voting methods including universal access to absentee ballots. 
Despite this success, some politicians in Concord are seeking to chip away at the rights of constitutionally eligible voters in our state with a slew of anti-democracy voting bills.
These politicians are weaponizing lies of voter fraud to justify these anti-democracy bills. If their agenda prevents even one eligible American from casting their ballot, it damages our democracy and builds the same narrative that led to the insurrection at the Capitol in January. When those in positions of power push for policies that obstruct access to safe and secure elections, they normalize a win-at-all-costs view of politics that is corrosive to democracy. 

These anti-voter bills include:

HB 531, relative to unconstitutional provisional ballots
HB 535, relative to anti-voter same day voter registration changes
HB 554, relative to anti-student voter eligibility confusion 
HB 362, relative to unconstitutional anti-student voter eligibility
HB 292, relative to anti-elderly and disabled voter changes to absentee ballot  
 

In contrast, there are a number of bipartisan bills and initiatives proposed which would actually add additional security and increase integrity in our elections. 

This pro-voter legislation and policy includes:

SB 46, relative to the expansion of electronic poll books
HB 524, relative to requiring the Secretary of State to conduct random audits of results
ERIC membership: Members of both parties have expressed support this session for New Hampshire to join a majority of states as a member of the Electronic Registration Information Center. ERIC membership would ensure clean voter check lists and catch cases of possible voter error quickly, while enfranchising unregistered but eligible voters.  

Free and fair elections are the bedrock of our democracy, and Granite Staters trust that you will do everything in your power to protect the right of every Granite Stater to exercise our constitutional right to vote.

Please join us in the fight to call on legislators to protect the right to vote and condemn anti-voter legislation by signing and promoting this petition with your personal networks.

    If one truly believes in the idea of a democratic Republic, why wouldn’t they want to make the ability to vote easier, and not harder?

    Please do not move forward with new bills to restrict voter participation in upcoming elections, As our population ages the ability to vote by mail, easily register to vote and feel confident that our votes are counted is so important. Do not diminish legitimate voters from exercising their right to vote.

    Republicans attacking voting rights because they lost the recent election is a deplorable tactic. All Americans deserve the right to make a choice in their government by voting for the candidates of their choice. Stop the nonsense and do something constructive in government besides whining, talking about potato heads, Dr. Seuss books removed from circulation. Get serious about maintaining the democracy our ancestors fought diligently to establish.
