    Please VETO SB3 and Protect NH Voting Rights

    GOAL: 147 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

  • Keeping up with the Rebels

    The past nine months have been a whirl of activity, largely due to political events that have changed the legislative landscape both here in New Hampshire and in the nation.NH Rebellion and Open Democracy are committed to developing and promoting legislation that will strengthen democracy, increase transparency, and improve accountability.  All these principles are threatened in the current political climate. Throughout the past year, our Legislative Committee has been meeting regularly to assess these challenges, while our Open Democracy Action group has been defending and advocating for our priorities.  The following is a summary of past highlights.

  • Time to Transform

    I woke up this cold, NH January morning thinking about butterflies and the way a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly.  I was thinking how the monied interests that are influencing and corrupting our society are like the caterpillars.  It’s our job to transform them.

    We see how money in politics, from the opiod crisis to the environment, affects how policy decisions are made.  We see how the money barrier prevents good people from running for office.  We see the time that our politicians spend raising money that takes away from their time governing.

    It’s time that we work to transform our campaign finance system so that everyone has an equal voice not just those that have money to influence a campaign.  It’s time that we put voters in control not big money donors who influence governmental policies to enrich the monied class and not the whole spectrum of our society.

    It’s time to donate $20.20 monthly to the NH Rebellion so that we can make the transformation happen before the next presidential election in 2020.

    We must organize, educate and advocate.  Today, Inauguration Day, is a great day to think about the unique opportunities that we have to transform our communities.


  • 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
