This Was an Illegal Election, and It Was Held in Direct Violation of the Constitution of New Hampshire


The “state” of New Hampshire just conducted a fraudulent election, and its outcome is invalid. Governor Sununu and the Democratic legislature violated their oath of office when they passed HB 1266 and when Sununu signed it into law.

The New Hampshire Constitution, Part I, Bill of Rights, Article XI, only provides for absentee ballots for qualified voters who will be out of their town or voting district on the day of the election or who are unable to attend because of a physical disability preventing them from attending in person.

Sununu and the Democrats committed treason when they passed HB 1266, which amends the people’s Constitutional voter qualification clause by granting mail-in voting exemptions without the consent of the people—in direct violation of the amendment process required under the Constitution of this State.

The following provisions are evidence of a crime: HB 1266/Bill Title: Making temporary modifications to the absentee voter registration, absentee ballot application, and absentee voting processes in response to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) disease.

All the following exemptions are illegal since the Governor and the Legislature cannot amend the Constitution. They may only propose amendments to the people for their consideration. I will be entitled to vote by absentee ballot because [(check one)]:

[_____] I [plan] may be absent on the day of the election from the city, town, or unincorporated place where I am domiciled[.]; or

[_____] I am requesting [a] an absentee ballot for the presidential primary election, and I may be absent on the day of the election from the city, town, or unincorporated place where I am domiciled, but the date of the election has not been announced. I understand that I may only make such a request 14 days after the filing period for candidates has closed[, and that if I will not be absent on the date of the election, I am not eligible to vote by absentee ballot.]; or

[_____] I cannot appear in public on election day because of observance of a religious commitment[.]; or

[_____] I am unable to vote in person due to a disability[.]; or

[_____] I cannot appear at any time during polling hours at my polling place because of an employment obligation. For the purposes of this application, the term “employment shall include the care of children and infirm adults, with or without compensation[.]; or

[For use only on the Monday immediately prior to the election:] I cannot appear at my polling place on election day because the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning, blizzard warning, or ice storm warning for election day applicable to my city, town, or unincorporated place and either

[(check one)]:

[______] I am elderly or infirm, or I have a physical disability, and would otherwise vote in person, but I have concerns for my safety traveling in the storm[.]; or

[______] I anticipate that school, child care, or adult care will be canceled, and would otherwise vote in person but will need to care for children or infirm adults.

The following opinion given by the New Hampshire Supreme Court makes it clear that the Speaker and the Democrats abused their authority by amending a Constitutional right by legislative rule.

The same applies here. The Governor and the Legislature exercised undelegated powers by amending the Constitution by legislative fiat. The legislature may not, even in the exercise of its “absolute” internal rulemaking authority, violate constitutional limitations. Id. at 284, 288.

Indeed, “[n]o branch of State government can lawfully perform any act which violates the State Constitution.” LaFrance, 124 N.H. at 176. Therefore, “[a]ny legislative act violating the constitution or infringing on its provisions must be void because the legislature, when it steps beyond its bounds, acts without authority. The mail-in vote amounted to 29.6% during the primary and 30.4% in the general election.

This was an illegal election, and it was held in direct violation of the Constitution of New Hampshire. It is void due to fraud.
