NHDP Statement: NH GOP undermines election integrity, passing SB3 based on Sununu voter fraud lie

Concord, N.H. – Today, House Republicans passed SB3, a voter suppression bill that would disenfranchise eligible Granite Staters. The bill passed 191-162.

SB3 would send government agents to your door to confirm voting eligibility, establish an unconstitutional “verifiable act” requirement, create a de facto literacy test, lengthen and slow lines at the polls, and punish eligible voters with a fine and legal action if they fail to confirm their status within 10 days after an election.

NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement:

“Today, Governor Sununu and President Trump’s voter fraud lies definitively shaped New Hampshire law. Our voting system is already secure with no credible voter fraud, and Republican attempts to say otherwise are based in conspiracy theory. Voter suppression laws like SB3 are designed to drive down turnout and slow down lines. These voting roadblocks change the outcomes of our elections. Anytime we disenfranchise a single eligible voter, we are damaging the integrity of our elections. Governor Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for propagating lies and legislation that undermine the integrity of our democratic process.”
