New Hampshire Legislative Committee Hears Testimony For and Against Restoring the Straight-Ticket DeviceJanuary 15th, 2013
On January 15, a New Hampshire House Committee heard testimony for and against a bill to restore straight-ticket voting. See this account of the hearing. The story does not mention any witness who raise the point that if enacted, the bill would only give a straight-ticket device to parties that had polled 4% for Governor or U.S. Senator in the last election, and would not give a straight-ticket device to groups that had completed the party petition.
