Gov. Chris Sununu is ending New Hampshire’s state of emergency on Friday, citing a decline of COVID-19 infections and rising numbers of vaccinated people.
Planned events this weekend relating to the election audit in Windham, New Hampshire include a rally for a statewide audit on Friday and a livestream interview Sunday evening with New Hampshire State Sen. Bob Giuda and auditors Harri Hursti, Philip Stark and Mark Lindeman.
Last week the GOP-controlled Senate approved a two-year $13.5 billion budget that included a provision prohibiting teaching about systemic racism and sexism in public schools and state-funded programs.
A motion to pass Senate Bill 61, which called for barring unions from charging dues or fees to nonmembers for the costs of representation, failed by a vote of 199-175. A number of Republican lawmakers joined Democrats in tanking the proposal.
A proposal moving through the legislative process would prevent the state or local governments from shutting down religious services during future public health emergencies. Another bill seeks to eliminate the criminalizing of cosmetology without pay.
I am not accusing Hursti of anything wrong or nefarious. But it is important to remember that it is the memory cards that make it easy to hack the machines to produce “fraudulent tape,” but “only on Tuesday evening,” so this is a big deal that warrants answers.
LHS CEO Jeff Silvestro knew for a fact that the creases in those mail-in ballots would create a misread or rejection. Every single politician involved in the meeting at issue knew it as well. And they did nothing.
The legislation, which was approved by the state Senate last week, would allow local governments to offer tax breaks for housing developments anywhere within their borders, if a third or more of the units qualify as affordable housing.
In addition to wrongly interpreting paper ballot folds over a candidate’s oval as a vote, it appears that AccuVote tabulator machines with significantly high overvotes consistently favored Biden-Harris on Election Day in towns across New Hampshire.
He talks about folded ballots as part of the integrity of the process. Not machine failure but a failure of people tasked with ensuring election integrity missing or ignoring what appears to be the issue in Windham, and possibly most of New Hampshire, going back decades.
The amendment’s primary sponsor, Rep. Barbara Griffin, R-Goffstown, called the pending federal bill — titled the For the People Act— a “direct assault on the state of New Hampshire and its ability to conduct elections.”
“So the question here was, would the fold through [candidate] St. Laurent’s vote target be interpreted as a mark that would generate an overvote in that contest so that none of the four would be counted. And we found rates of generating overvotes from roughly 24 percent up to 72 percent,” auditor Philip Stark said.
