NHDP Statement: Sununu pressured into opposing HB 372, but he needs to commit to a veto


Concord, N.H. - On Friday, Governor Sununu said he "hated" HB 372, a Republican-driven disenfranchisement bill that would force voters to declare residency upon registration, effectively a poll tax that would discourage legally eligible young voters from participating in democracy. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "Governor Sununu realizes it's not politically viable for him to keep pushing voter disenfranchisement laws. Sununu continues to struggle to walk back his widely debunked claim that Massachusetts voters were bused in to vote in New Hampshire illegally. His voter fraud lie paved the way for SB3, designed to combat an problem that doesn't exist. In a way only Chris 'doublespeak' Sununu can do, he did leave the door open to supporting the bill by failing to commit to vetoing HB372 if it gets to his desk. Thanks to immense public pressure, Sununu is being backed into opposing this bill, but until HB 372 is pulled or vetoed, Sununu's voter disenfranchisement reputation precedes him."
