The stage is set for the meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, Saint Anselm College.
Commission Vice Chair, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, will make opening remarks, followed by Secretary of State Bill Gardner and former governor and White House Chief of Staff Gov. John H. Sununu.
The event will feature three panel discussions and a demonstration of “Historic New Hampshire Voting Machines Still in Use Since 1892.”
Panel topics include Historical Election Turnout Statistics, Current Election Integrity Issues Affecting Public Confidence, and a Primer on Electronic Voting Systems and Election Integrity.
The issues of voter fraud and election law couldn’t get any hotter in New Hampshire, as the commission visit approaches.
Lawyers for the Democratic Party and the League of Women voters will square off against lawyers from the Attorney General’s office on Monday in Nashua Superior Court in the first of what will be several hearings on a lawsuit aimed at stopping implementation of the state’s new election law, SB 3.
As if that wasn’t enough fuel for the fire, Speaker of the House Shawn Jasper on Thursday released voter registration statistics on the November election showing that 6,540 voters registered using an out-of-state driver’s license.
A good turnout from both sides of the issue is expected inside and outside the popular venue on Tuesday.
