Want to know how to SPEAK UP and TAKE ACTION for the
fair, nonpartisan and transparent redistricting process for New Hampshire's voting maps?
Thank you, NH voter, for taking a few minutes to speak out for fairness for all of your fellow Granite Staters. No matter where you live in New Hampshire, your age, the color of your skin or your religion, you are entitled to fair, honest representation in state government. Fair, nonpartisan and transparent voting districts are a key part of that fair representation.
Why is fair redistricting important?
All citizens should be represented by a person that looks out for the majority
Here are some simple, yet powerful, actions you can take to pressure our legislators to have a redistricting process which allow for public input, public hearings, and the inspection of the maps, criteria and software:
Send an Email to the Special Committee on Redistricting - The Special Committee on Redistricting is comprised of 15 legislators, 8 Republicans and 7 Democrats, appointed by the Speaker of the NH House. The committee has an email address which reaches all committee members, but address, phone and email information for each member can be found on our Special Committee contact page.
Here are some sample emails, but please don't cut and paste. You can use the concepts, but the emails should be authentically from you.
Write a letter to the editor to your local paper (samples)
Participate in the Map-a-Thon
Fill out a "Communities of Interest" survey about your town, or towns you're familiar with.
Call your NH state rep and NH senator
If your town has a population of 3,445 or over, contact your local selectboard and have them send a letter to the Special Committee asking for their own NH Constitution-mandated NH House of Representatives district.
Help us pass the federal HR1 / S1 For the People Act, which mandates an independent redistricting commission for drawing Congressional lines.
