Active Cases

New Hampshire Four Pillars

American Federation of Teachers v. Gardner

On behalf of the American Federation of Teachers, we sued New Hampshire on three of the Four Pillars: pre-paid postage, ballot receipt deadline and third party collection. We also challenged New Hampshire’s witness and documentation requirements, the state’s overly-complicated absentee registration request process, and its restrictions on drop boxes.

New Hampshire Voting Rights Case

LWVNH v. Gardner

State constitutional challenge to New Hampshire’s proof of domicile requirements that required all prospective registrants to submit proof of a verifiable act of domicile in order to register to vote, eliminated the option to submit an affidavit to establish domicile, and subjected those who register within 30 days of an election or on Election Day without proof of domicile to criminal penalties if those individuals fail to present appropriate documentation shortly after the election. We won in the NH Superior Court, and are currently opposing the appeal.
