HOUSE REPUBLICANS DISREGARD WIDESPREAD SUPPORT TO BLOCK INDEPENDENT REDISTRICTING COMMISSION


CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to reject House Bill 121, which would establish an independent redistricting commission in New Hampshire. Following the vote Representative Marjorie Smith (D-Durham) released the following statement:


“The voters of New Hampshire deserve to pick their representatives, not the other way around. Governor Sununu has rejected efforts to take politics out of the redistricting process for years, thwarting the will of voters who overwhelmingly support an independent process. This legislation would have prevented political gerrymandering, assuring fair representation for Granite Staters. It is disappointing that Governor Sununu and the new Republican majority is again denying fair representation to their constituents.”
