RELEASE: Senate Democratic Leader’s Statement on NH Superior Court Ruling on SB 3

CONCORD – Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield) released the following statement after a judge issued a rejection of harsh penalties mandated by Senate Bill 3, legislation that creates the potential for widespread voter suppression in New Hampshire:

“Today’s ruling is a rebuke of the Republican effort to intimidate and disenfranchise New Hampshire voters and a win for voting rights. The court’s determination to strip the penalties in SB 3 because they are a serious deterrent to voting is vindication for those fighting to protect the fundamental right to vote. This is a strong first step in what will be a long fight for justice. Senate Democrats remain firm in our commitment to defend the right to vote and will continue to push back against the ongoing attack on New Hampshire voters.”
