  • Please VETO SB3 and Protect NH Voting Rights

    GOAL: 149 signatures

    Governor Sununu,

    • Our democracy is best when everyone participates  It shouldn’t matter if you’re a lifelong Granite Stater or recently settled in our great state. What matters is that we have an engaged, civically minded community.
    • Instead of paving the way for eligible people to participate in our elections, New Hampshire's SB 3 puts up more red tape so that eligible people have a hard time casting their ballots.
    • No local election officials supported the bill after hours of testimony and they were not engaged in drafting of the legislation. SB3 is designed to jam polling location lines, target voters in transition and undermine our popular same day registration system.
    • I urge you to support secure automatic voter registration and the implementation of electronic poll booksWe should be ensuring that all honest votes are counted, not imposing endless bureaucracy.
    • Electronic poll books save cities and towns taxpayer dollars and reduce lines at polling places.  Automatic Registration decreases inaccuracies in voter records and saves cities and towns taxpayer dollars.
    • I urge you to veto SB3 and support modernization to keep New Hampshire First in the Nation.
    • Call Governor Sununu at 603-271-2121 and tell him NO on SB3

  • Help Us Make History

    Have you dreamed of making history? Of course, we all have. And now we have a chance to be a part of NH’s first day of giving - an opportunity to unite Granite Staters around causes in which they truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.

    From Granny D’s kitchen window to our office is an Ivy plant. It was planted, loved and cared for by Doris “Granny D” Haddock. The plant is growing in our office as we work hard to grow our democracy movement. Ivy_State_House_.png
