Are you happy with the results?
Whether I'm happy/not happy is irrelevent

Its a matter of whats constitutional....

The NH Constitution indicates that the winning candidate be the one with a plurality of votes

You want to change that then you need to amend the constitution of nh

What would make me HAPPY is if our AG would get serious about going whole hogg and prosecuting/punishing voter fraud

Nothing I've supported would do any such thing.

Approval voting still produces a winning candidate with a plurality of votes.

yea, that fat cow is complaining about Sununu's proper/lawful/constitutional veto of HB 611

Sununu vetoes 'no excuse' voting by absentee

here's the purple wonders letter to the editor

Your Turn, NH: Rep. Katherine Rogers -- No excuse for vetoing 'no excuse' ballot law
I wish these hack rags hadn't shut down comments. There was usually more truth in those than the column/editorial/LTE. At least they would let common citizens parse the articles and seek the real truth.

“No excuse” benefits everyone, including seniors who might have trouble getting to the polls, rural voters far from a polling place, first responders whose schedules can be preempted, a single parent working two jobs, families whose kids get sick, someone with an unexpected trip, and all of us in dicey weather.

Rodgers left out that it might prevent out of state non-residents (read that as liberal democrats) to vote illegally in NH.

Isnt that the truth

Commenters on the UL site used to put the editors to shame for factually incorrect/poor reporting

And then out of those votes cast, the person with the most votes wins.

Maine doesn't have approval voting. They have ranked choice voting, which is an utter shit show, because it's not at all the same system.

Doesnt distract from the issue.......the dems are trying to pass a bill that will effectively allow a person to cast more than one vote and alter elections........not to mention the fact that the constitution provides for the candidate with the plurality of votes wins

One person
One vote

Have you never voted in a multi-member race in NH?

They literally say, "Vote for not more than n candidates". (It can be as many as 24, I think, depending on the district.)

One person.
One vote for everyone they want to see win.

Probably the easiest way to deal with this kind of crap is to pass a bill that requires any sort of firearms legislation to be brought before the people for a vote.
The power of a few or in Massachusetts's case one to write legislation that effects all of us significantly should be voted on by "we the people."
We need to empower ourselves. This is not going away, they are going to keep throwing the same shit at the wall till it sticks.

Thats not what is being discussed or proposed...I dont feel like you're being honest about this discussion.....furthermore you're example demonstrates exactly my point.....that the voter gets multiple votes under whats being proposed.

One office (Gov, Senator, CD 1/2 Rep etc)
One vote for the person you wish to see fill that office

In MA this would mean the end to firearms ownership.

... the initial fillings for next years bills. ... first three:
2020-2001 HB Title: imposing a ban on assault weapons in New Hampshire.
Sponsors: (Prime) Katherine Rogers

2020-2002 HB Sponsors: (Prime) Katherine Rogers
2020-2003 HB Sponsors: (Prime) Katherine Rogers

These bills are being filled by the same state rep that was convicted of assaulting another. ...
Seems to be some incongruity here.

She has no standing, as they say sometimes.

Time to stay involved
