by Op-Ed February 7, 2018

By Jim Kofalt New Hampshire law states that “political advertising” must be signed. In other words, if you are distributing materials that advocate for the success or defeat of a candidate or a particular measure, you need to state clearly and legibly who paid for it. In early January, an unsigned flyer showed up in […]

There’s a problem with SB3 – the proposed election law

by Skip May 17, 2017

Yeah, Concord Monitor again, this time on SB3 that proposes to tighten up NH’s election law on the word “domicile” and cut out the nonsense that has basically allowed drive-by-voting for decades (and yes, we’ve been writing about this for years here at the ‘Grok).  I applaud the Rs for trying to do something about […]

Reminder: SB 3 is Crap – Amend it or Scrap It

by Steve MacDonald April 18, 2017

Senate Bill 3 claims to address the issue of domicile and residence for voting purposes in New Hampshire. It fails. The Senate passed it anyway, and despite its flaws, it is up for consideration in the House. The single biggest problem is non-resident college students voting in local elections instead of voting absentee where the […]

by Steve MacDonald January 13, 2017

Larry Lessig Thinks Poster Child For “Money in Politics Problem” Should Be Crowned President

by Steve MacDonald November 27, 2016

Larry Lessig’s NH Rebellion is a partisan front to advance the left’s agenda under the guise of campaign finance reform. We pointed it out “on day one” or at least reminded folks who probably already had their suspicions. Always remember Rule number one. If Democrats want it the odds are good it’s bad for freedom, individual […]

Project Veritas in NH 2016 – Different?

by Ed Naile February 11, 2016

AG Games

by Ed Naile May 18, 2015

Let’s play a little guessing game! This low-life scum that sent the fake press release about Republican House of Representatives Candidate Yvonne Dean-Bailey in next Tuesday’s special election has admittedly violated NH Election Law. The portion of the law he violated is in the Criminal Code RSA 666.6 so it will be hard to pretend […]

by Steve MacDonald January 22, 2015
Thumbnail image for Will NH HB320 Infringe on Political Speech?

Finding New Hampshire House Bill 320 (HB320) was like tripping over something in the dark on your way to something else.  The thing in the dark is “AN ACT relative to removal of certain campaign materials at the polling place.” Certain campaign materials?  What campaign materials? HB320 would amend Amend RSA 659:43, II to allow […]

by Ed Naile October 22, 2014

North Carolina’s clean election laws were  confirmed by the US Supreme Court a few weeks ago.  N.C. Legislators dumped same day registration and the court upheld the sensible move as a state right.

Would NH Democrats Want Out Of State Military Personel Voting Here?

by Steve MacDonald August 6, 2012

It is generally accepted that military personnel and their families,  no matter where they are working, get to vote back home, no matter where they are and how far away “home” is.

Not So Secret Fact about Voter ID – We Don’t Need Democrats To Pass It

by Steve MacDonald January 13, 2012

The only reason we do not have a voter ID law in New Hampshire is because Republicans didn’t vote to override a veto.  We don’t need Lynch to like the bill.  We don’t need one single Democrat in the entire legislature to like it either.  We just need a few more GOP House members to […]
