NH Sen Carson disappointed by veto of voter residency law 

Concord, NH – Governor Maggie Hassan today vetoed SB 179 relative to voter residency requirements.

 

Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) released a statement following the Governor’s veto.

 

“I am disappointed that Governor Hassan has chosen to veto a responsible bill that would have restored meaningful elections to the citizens of New Hampshire, ensuring that legal residents’ votes can affect change in the communities they are invested in,” said Senator Sharon Carson (R- Londonderry).

 

“The legislation the Governor vetoed would have added a 30-day residency requirement and clarified the state’s voting laws. This bill has the full support of New Hampshire’s official on voting laws, Secretary of State William Gardner, who says it will protect the state from voter fraud and drive-by voting without infringing on an individual’s right to vote.”

NH House Majority Leader Reacts to Veto of SB179 Stop Drive-By-Voter Fraud

CONCORD – House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline) offered the following statement on the Governor’s veto of SB179, relative to eligibility to vote in New Hampshire.

 

The bill passed the House, as amended, by a vote of 211-145 on June 3rd, and the Senate concurred with the House on June 4th.

 

House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline)


“Governor Hassan’s veto further delays our ability to implement reasonable clarifications in our election laws and ensure ballots cast in New Hampshire elections are cast by duly qualified people. Our citizens should have a reasonable expectation that their vote will not be cancelled out by temporary visitors. With the New Hampshire presidential primary less than a year away, the eyes of the nation are on us. Under our existing laws our doors are still technically open for people with little intent on staying here to participate in that primary. That seems unfair to most people, and it’s unfair to the process we hold so dear.”

NH GOP - GOV HASSAN VETOES BIPARTISAN DOMICILE REFORM BILL 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Governor Hassan's veto of SB 179, bipartisan legislation that would have established a thirty day residency requirement to vote in New Hampshire:

 

"Governor Hassan ignored Secretary of State Bill Gardner's sensible advice by vetoing this bipartisan legislation to ensure the integrity of New Hampshire's elections. Secretary Gardner is one of the foremost authorities on New Hampshire election law, and his strong support for a thirty day residency requirement shows that this commonsense approach should have been signed into law. Governor Hassan's decision to veto this bill is partisan politics at its worst. She has made it clear that she is focused on appeasing liberal special interest groups that are pushing her to run for United States Senate instead of doing what is best for New Hampshire."

 

Secretary of State Bill Gardner supported SB 179 and worked with legislative leadership to ensure it would not infringe on individuals' right to vote. Recently, Secretary of State Bill Gardner stated that New Hampshire has "drive-by voting" and that he has witnessed fraud personally.
