Please contact all NH State Reps TODAY (easy email address lists below) and respectfully ask that they support SB43. Your voice makes a difference!
This important Bill is currently part of the House Consent Calendar, which is usually passed by a voice vote without incident along with all of the other Bills on the Consent Calendar. But any State Representative is entitled to pull a Bill from the Consent Calendar and ask for it to be voted on separately. If that happens, them amendments could also be proposed and voted on and it could get messy… so as a measure of caution, it is important to let our State Representatives know that we want them to support SB43.
Why is SB43 Important?
Senate Bill SB43 mandates an audit of Windham’s disturbing November 3, 2020 general election results that produced a massive discrepancy between the machine vote tally for the State Rep race on election day and a hand recount 9 days later. The recount showed a difference of 1,363 votes for the State Rep race being shifted with only 10,006 ballots were cast. That is a big discrepancy – and we need to know why!
Senator Bob Giuda spearheaded a herculean effort to push SB43 through the Senate with a 24-0 vote in February because the AG’s office refused to perform an investigation into the disturbing results. The Bill was subsequently strengthened via a house amendment and passed by the House Election Law Committee 20-0. It will now be voted on by the full house tomorrow or Thursday.
The passage of SB43 into law is critical to ensure election integrity is verified not only in Windham, but across NH – because the same machines are used to count 85% of all votes in NH.
What You Can Do!
Please take a few minutes to write four short (and identical), respectful emails to every NH State Representative and ask that they vote to support SB43. Writing four emails to 100 email addresses each – instead of one email to 400 email addresses will ensure your email provider will honor the request to deliver the emails. Please use the four groups of email addresses below, and copy one complete group of email addresses (beginning with the first email address in that group) and paste into the “To:” line of a new email with the Subject: “Please Vote to Approve SB43 to Ensure NH Election Integrity”.
Here is a sample email that you can modify:
Tomorrow or Thursday, I believe you are expected to vote on SB43 to authorize and direct an audit of the Windham NH voting machines and ballots. Please support this important Bill that will ensure election integrity and transparency in NH.

Repeat for groups 2-4.
Update on April 7, at 3:20p:
I received an email from the NH House Election Law Committee Chair Barbara Griffin, who told me that SB43 has PASSED the House and it is now going back to the Senate! I am hopeful that the Senate will concur with the changes the House made to the Bill and then it will be on its way to the Governor to be signed into law.
Now that SB43 as passed the House, it is important for us respect our State Representatives and stop the flow of emails to each of them. Therefore, I have removed the email list for all 400 NH House Reps to honor a request I received from House Election Law Committee Chairperson Barbara Griffin.
Thank you to everyone who sent emails to our State Reps to support SB43! When we work together, our voices are heard!
