NH Labor News: Let America Vote Inducts New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu into Voter Suppression Hall of Shame
Washington, DC — Let America Vote today inducted New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu to the Voter Suppression Hall of Shame, a list of the country’s most active vote-suppressing politicians.
“New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu spent his summer vetoing bills that would have made elections more free and fair in the Granite State,” said Porsha White, National Political Director of Let America Vote. “Sununu vetoed bills that would have repealed GOP voter suppression bills that redefined residency and revoked the voting rights of thousands of students who live in New Hampshire. Because of Sununu’s veto, eligible New Hampshire student voters are forced to pay an unconstitutional poll tax. Sununu also vetoed a bill with broad bipartisan support to establish an independent redistricting commission in New Hampshire, which would have prevented extreme partisan gerrymandering. Sununu has done all he can to prevent free, fair, and accessible elections in New Hampshire. That’s why Let America Vote is adding Sununu to the Voter Suppression Hall of Shame.”
