Statement from NHYR Chair Joe Sweeney on out-of-state attacks on Senate Bill 3 .
CONCORD - Last week, an out-of-state Democratic SuperPAC begin running online web ads targeting New Hampshire State Senators Birdsell, Sanborn, and Gray regarding their crucial voter integrity legislation, SB3. NHYR Chair Joe Sweeney released the following state regarding the legislation:
"Young voters expect that when they go to the polls that they are being joined by other voters from New Hampshire. SB3 promotes maximum voter participation while adding much needed basic provisions to protect voter integrity.
It is shameful that the Democrats, who are the Party of the Past, continue to fight basic voter integrity measures and take funds and talking points from out-of-state dark money groups. We would like to praise Senator Birdsell and her fellow Senators for standing up for New Hampshire's young voters by protecting their ballot."
