Let America Vote Statement on New Hampshire Student Disenfranchisement Bill HB 1264

After a vote in the New Hampshire Senate today advanced HB 1264, a voter suppression bill designed by Republican politicians to disenfranchise college students because they lean Democratic, Let America Vote President Jason Kander released the following statement:

“Republican politicians in New Hampshire have become completely shameless in their efforts to take voting rights away from young people. HB 1264 is politically-motivated, unnecessary and un-democratic. Governor Sununu has already said that he “hates” HB 372, a nearly identical bill with the same purpose of disenfranchising student voters. Governor Sununu now needs to follow through, commit to vetoing this bill and end the assault by Republican politicians on voting rights in New Hampshire. An attack on democracy anywhere diminishes the integrity of elections throughout our country, and Let America Vote will work to defeat New Hampshire politicians who try to stop eligible voters from voting.”
