CONCORD – House Speaker Shawn Jasper (R-Hudson) offered the following statement after review of the Court’s ruling on a request for preliminary injunction in the NH Democratic Party et. al v Gardner et al suit challenging the constitutionality of Senate Bill 3.

“We’re very pleased that the Court upheld the major provisions of Senate Bill 3. This is an important first ruling in what will be an ongoing adjudication that we believe will lead to the law being upheld,” said Jasper. “Although the penalties in the law cannot be enforced at this time, the Court found no reason to delay the implementation of the other provisions of the law that provide for a more transparent and honest voter registration process.”
