CONCORD - Today, Governor Sununu vetoed HB 1665, a bipartisan bill to establish an independent advisory commission on redistricting. 


Senator Shannon Chandley (D-Amherst) issued the following statement in response:  


“When we allow those with the most vested interest to determine our districts, we become gerrymandered, and in turn silence the voices and will of Granite State voters. Over 80% of New Hampshire voters believe that gerrymandering creates unfair districts and agree that a neutral commission could correct unfair district lines. I am disappointed that the Governor did not support this bipartisan legislation that would have increased accountability, transparency, and fairness in our election process.”
