I went into the way back machine to see...Now you're just making shit up.
Its shenanigans no matter how you slice it
Let NES be the judge.Sorry, no. "One person one vote" forces voters to make one choice, when more than one might be acceptable. As often as not, they'll choose None Of The Above and simply refuse to vote in that race.
Approval voting advances all those who are "good enough", while holding back all those who aren't.
ROFLMay the jurors also note that I specifically mentioned approval voting, not RCV.
Where in the Constitution does it specify the voting method?ROFL
Who effing cares......your argument is akin to complaining about a 3 day waiting period to purchase guns vs a 2 day waiting period..........both suck, are not constitutional and infringe upon the rights of people.
The dem proposed changes to voting in NH will have the same impact that it has in maine.....specifically to make things unnecessarily complicated and introduce opportunities for MORE voter fraud and manipulation of winners.
No matter how you slice it the proposed changes dems are trying to ram home are a bad idea
Same for Governor:[Art.] 33. [Secretary of State to Count Votes for Senators and Notify Persons Elected.] And that there may be a due meeting of senators and representatives on the first Wednesday of December, biennially, the secretary of state shall, as soon as may be, examine the returned copy of such records; and fourteen days before the first Wednesday of December, he shall issue his summons to such persons as appear to be chosen senators and representatives, by a plurality of votes, to attend and take their seats on that day.
[Art.] 42. [Election of Governor, Return of Votes; Electors; If No Choice, Legislature to Elect One of Two Highest Candidates; Qualifications for Governor.] The governor shall be chosen biennially in the month of November; and the votes for governor shall be received, sorted, counted, certified and returned, in the same manner as the votes for senators; and the secretary shall lay the same before the senate and house of representatives, on the first Wednesday following the first Tuesday of January to be by them examined, and in case of an election by a plurality of votes through the state, the choice shall be by them declared and published. And the qualifications of electors of the governor shall be the same as those for senators; and if no person shall have a plurality of votes, the senate and house of representatives shall, by joint ballot elect one of the two persons, having the highest number of votes, who shall be declared governor.
I already posted the same in this thread previously wrt NH ConstitutionWhere in the Constitution does it specify the voting method?
Hint: It doesn't. Aside from the electoral college and some votes in Congress, the US Constitution is 100% SILENT on how voting is to be done. It is left to the Congress and to the states to determine how an election is held.
In NH, the constitution used to say that senators were elected by a majority of votes but that was changed to plurality in 1912.
Same for Governor:
Specifically, Dover Democrat Peter B. Schmidt LSR#2020-2262 the title of which is, "Establishing a committee to study..."
Both of those are real head-scratchers. Alicia is a firearms instructor and founding member of Women's Defense League of New Hampshire. I have no idea what she's thinking.2020-2692 HB Title: relative to limiting access to firearms for persons with serious mental illness.
Sponsors: (Prime) Alicia Lekas
2020-2699 HB Title: allowing licensed mental health professionals to limit access to firearms for certain clients.
Sponsors: (Prime) Alicia Lekas
The last one is a real nugget....allowing "mental health professionals" to make determinations wrt constitutional rights and clients......that is guaranteed to further discourage people from seeking health and even scarier what of the situation where a judge orders an evaluation of someone.......nothing to see here....move along
