AN ACCURATE VOTE-COUNT DOESN'T COUNT IN NH!
SB 109 was voted down in the NH Senate yesterday with a voice vote refusing to authorize Town Moderators to perform a public, random, verification count on vote-counting machines.
An amendment was recommended by prime sponsor, Sen. Martha Fuller Clark during the session, but other members of the Senate would not overturn the committee recommendation in order to consider the amendment. The amendment addressed concerns expressed by the Attorney General's office.
Listen to the Senate Session on SB 109 from 2/23/17
(SB 109 starts at 1:15:20 pm)
With only voiced support for SB 109 from a few senators, it is clear that the NH Senate would rather ASSUME vote-counting machines are accurate than to have EVIDENCE of their accuracy!
Why is there objection by state election officials and our senators, to Town Moderators fulfilling their Constitutional duty according to Part 2, Article 32 and numerous state laws that hold Moderators accountable for an accurate vote count?
PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL YOUR SENATOR AND ASKED HOW THEY VOTED ON SB 109. IF THEY SUPPORTED THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION OF INEXPEDIENT TO LEGISLATE (ITL), ASK THEM WHY. (Use the FAQ for SB 109 to educate and engage them.)
IF THEY VOTED OPPOSED TO THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - which means they voted in favor of the bill - THANK THEM FOR DOING SO, BUT ASK WHY THEY DID NOT REQUEST A ROLL CALL VOTE.
PLEASE SHARE YOUR SENATOR'S RESPONSE WITH NHCRN.
