CONCORD- House Majority Leader Richard “Dick” Hinch (R-Merrimack) issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of SB3 relative to domicile for voting purposes.

“I applaud our Republican colleagues in the Senate today on the passage of Senate Bill 3. SB3 is an important piece of legislation that will continue to preserve New Hampshire’s electoral integrity by making sure that the right to vote is protected for all of the eligible voters of our state while cracking down on those that look to take advantage of the voting process.

In a state where numerous elections have been decided by just a handful of votes, it is important to make sure that every ballot cast by an eligible voter is counted. I look forward to SB3’s introduction to the House and working to get it passed so we can get this important piece of legislation to the Governor’s desk.”
