State House Round Up

Dear Friend,
Tomorrow is the 2018 Primary Election!

This is our chance to prove our grassroots energy will directly translate to unprecedented levels of voter turnout, with Democrats showing up like never before to participate and vote.

The Secretary of State’s office has already predicted that a record-breaking number of voters will cast a ballot in the Democratic primary, so let’s do everything we can to prove them right.

Consider tomorrow a dry run for the general election. Every vote is a rebuke of President Trump’s and Governor Sununu’s corruption and greed. We must demand a state and federal government that will fight for all hardworking Granite Staters.

Please visit the NHDP’s Voting Resources page for information on where to vote, who’s running in your district, and how to register to vote. Also should you, or any voter, have an issue on primary day at the polls, please call the NHDP at 603-225-6899.

Let’s make history tomorrow! Afterward, we hope to see you at our sold out Unity Breakfast on Thursday, and at our Unity Weekend of Action where we’ll unite as a party and turn our focus to the general election!

Please continue to use this newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own newsletter.  

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Unity Weekend of Action!

Join us September 15th and 16th for the New Hampshire Democratic Party Coordinated Campaign’s Unity Weekend of Action!

We are so excited to knock doors in support of our fully united Democratic ticket and get to work electing Democrats up and down the ballot. Following the primary on September 11th, the Unity Weekend of Action is a chance for volunteers across the state to come together in support of our full slate of candidates.

Please join us as we knock doors, make calls, and remind voters what’s at stake in this election. We will launch 240 canvasses in 50 locations, because we are committed to turning out the Democratic vote from Nashua to Pittsburg.

Supporter Housing

Our Coordinated Campaign is in full swing for the 2018 election! We are bringing on staff and volunteers to support our town and county committees to turn out the vote in November. We need your help finding places for them to stay. Whether it is for a week or through election day – any little bit helps. Please fill out THIS FORM if you are able to house a volunteer or staff member.

Take the #24HourNH Pledge!

We have only 8 weeks before the 2018 election. That means there are just 8 weeks left to knock doors, make calls, talk to our neighbors, and make a difference in the most important election of our lives.

We all know that this election will come down to just a handful of votes. If we are really committed to electing Democratic majorities in the State House, State Senate, and Executive Council, a Democratic governor, and keeping both congressional seats blue, each one of us needs to step up and get involved.

That’s why we’re asking YOU to commit 24 HOURS of volunteer time by Election Day and take the #24HourNH Pledge!

You can knock doors or make calls for three hours every week, or have two or three marathon days of action – it’s up to you!

All that matters is that you are talking to voters, supporting Democrats, and doing your part to make a difference in New Hampshire.

Click HERE and take the #24HourNH pledge!

Sununu Reality Check

The fight against Governor Sununu’s misinformed and reckless vetoes of two energy bills will reach its conclusion this week, when the legislatures convenes to hold a vote on whether to override or uphold Sununu’s vetoes.

Sununu’s vetoes are the perfect example of him catering to the interests of the large corporations and utility companies that fund his campaigns. He vetoed thousands of jobs and a homegrown renewable energy industry out of existence without a plan to help the communities he impacted get back on their feet.

bipartisan rally was held last week at the state house to build support for the override effort. Newspapers have written editorialsadvocating for the vote to override. There’s just one thing left to do. Find your legislator, call them, and ask them to vote to override SB365 and SB446:
