Concord, NH- House Republican Leader Dick Hinch (R-Merrimack) released the following statement today in response to the NH Supreme Court’s Ruling on SB3. The Supreme Court denied the NH Democratic Party and the League of Women Voters, et al. access to the voter database in their latest ruling.

“The latest ruling by the Supreme Court is a major win for New Hampshire privacy advocates. The secure voter database in question contains extremely confidential information, such as the last four digits of social security numbers, birth dates, drivers’ license numbers, and more. Allowing access to this information in order for a political organization to make a biased argument, is a breach of New Hampshire citizens’ privacy and trust. I am hopeful the Court will see the compelling need for this law as SB3 continues to be fully litigated.”
