League of Women Voters Explains Constitutional Amendments

Concord, NH--The League of Women Voters of New Hampshire has published an informational brochure explaining the proposed amendments to the state Constitution that will be on the statewide ballot Nov. 7.

New Hampshire voters will be asked to vote for or against amendments limiting takings of private property through eminent domain and reworking the method of drawing district lines for the state House of Representatives. Each amendment was approved by the legislature and must be approved by two thirds of the voters to be added to the Constitution.

The League of Women Voters of New Hampshire does not support or oppose either of the two proposed amendments. The brochure provides objective, nonpartisan information for voters including the text of each amendment, an explanation of each amendment and brief summaries of the positions of proponents and opponents.

Printed copies of the brochure are being distributed free of charge around the state. Voters can also read the informational brochure on line at the League's website www.lwvnh.org. To obtain printed copies, please email Jane Armstrong at president@lwvnh.org or leave a message at the League of Women Voters office at 225-5344.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
