The New Hampshire TEA Party Republican Legislature did a lot more than just eliminate the 800 Million dollar deficit Democrats willingly left behind, while writing a balanced budget, and estimating revenues that came in on target. They also managed to repair some damage to election law in regard to domicile.
SB318, vetoed by Governor Lynch, was overridden by both the House and Senate (House Roll Call)(Senate Roll Call) and become law. And while there are several important corrections to the forms and language that were made the one that strikes me as the most important is this.
[A person’s claim of domicile for voting purposes shall not be conclusive of the person’s residence for any other legal purpose.]
“A persons claim to domicile for voting purposes shall not be conclusive of the person’s residence for any other legal purpose.”
This was inserted into the law when Democrats ran the legislature to allow anyone who was in the state to vote here on election day. And ‘anyone’ could. They could vote for Presidents, congressman, Senators, state house offices, Executive Council, Governor…and inevitably, or at least potentially (as long as they were on the list), your local offices, local warrant articles, school and town budgets, local spending, whatever their hearts desire and or as directed by the Democrat party of New Hampshire and their fellow travelers in the university system.
An army of available Democrat voting ballot stuffers on tap.
This is what allowed students whose declared legal residence was outside of New Hampshire to vote Democrat in New Hampshire, even though most of them were paying out of state tuition rates, carrying out of state drivers licenses, and not having any intention of staying after college (see NH Brain Drain).
But they were helping the New Hampshire Democrat party steal votes, and tax dollars, from you, by trying to make your vote meaningless. And New Hampshire Democrats wanted that, defended it, enshrined it in law, and to this day do everything they can to make you believe that this is something other than a game of political chess where they add extra pieces to give them the advantage.
You’ll be happy to know that not one Democrat in either chamber of the NH Legislature voted in favor of making SB318 law. And they can make all the excuses they like, but you can’t run away from the facts. New Hampshire democrats legalized ballot stuffing and out of state influence on local elections when they allowed people who lived outside New Hampshire to vote here, simply becasue they felt certain the majority of them would vote for them and their agenda. And this exactly why they are against voter ID.
Voter ID doesn’t make it harder for legal residents to vote. There is no proof that it does, has, or ever will. But what it does do is make it harder for Democrat voting college students to have bi-polar domicile syndrome, when New Hampshire Democrats need to stuff your local ballot box with their out of state influence.
And making it legal does not make it ethical. Your vote is perhaps your highest form of political speech. A majority left wing faction legalized the theft of votes from the legitimate residents, erased them with the votes of people whose home towns are outside New Hampshire, by making unethical behavior legal.
Claiming it was legal does not make it right. Letting the government define your morality is far from flattering. And defending the practice does not salvage your character either. Encouraging voter fraud is immoral and unethical. And demanding that we continue to permit it to occur should be the equivalent of political suicide.
And on that note, here is a list of every elected Democrat (and Republican) that voted to continue the practice of allowing out of state residents to influence local elections by claiming Democrat diagnosed bipolar domicile disorder.
Note: No Democrat voted in favor on the final vote for SB 318. Those missing from this list were excused, absent or did not vote. Republicans who voted against as well as State Senate Democrats are also listed
