State House Votes to Overturn Voter Restriction Bills SB 3, HB 1264
Concord, N.H. - Today, the Democratic majority in the New Hampshire State House voted in favor of HB 105, 209-155, and HB 106, 213-154. These two bills will effectively repeal SB 3 and HB 1264, two laws that function as voter restriction legislation and which were passed by Republican majorities in the state legislature and signed into law by Governor Sununu in 2017 and 2018, respectively. The New Hampshire Democratic Party is currently challenging both SB 3 and HB 1264 in court. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "SB 3 and HB 1264 are overly burdensome, discriminatory, and serve as absurd deterrents for eligible New Hampshire voters. For the sake of restoring New Hampshire's electoral integrity, we're glad to see the State House take action to overturn these bills in the face of these unfounded attacks on our democracy."
