Our organization might be small, but our reputation in NH is one that we fight for ALL the voters and citizens of the Granite State. Whether it's fair voting districts, ending the grip that special interest money has on our politicians, or making sure lobbyists don't have a louder voice than you, Open Democracy is here for an Equal Voice for All. Thanks for supporting our mission.
