RELEASE: Senate Democratic Leader’s Statement on Voter Checklist Data

CONCORD – Senate Democrat Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield) issued the following statement in response to House Speaker Jasper’s release of 2016 Voter Checklist data:

“Using cherry-picked data in order to support a false claim is dangerous and irresponsible. Today’s release of information by Speaker Jasper’s office fans the flames of misinformation in order to further suppress our citizens’ right to vote,” said Senator Woodburn. “The fact of the matter is that there is no requirement to obtain a NH driver’s license or register your car in order to exercise your constitutionally-protected right to vote. Even the restrictive Senate Bill 3 passed by Republicans earlier this year does not force a voter to obtain a NH license or register their car in New Hampshire.”
