Bring Home the Vote!
Helpful Links for New Hampshire

Voting is one of our nation’s most fundamental rights and a hallmark of our democracy. Yet for too long, many people with disabilities have been excluded from this core aspect of citizenship.  Important federal civil rights laws have been enacted to combat this form of discrimination and protect the fundamental right to vote for all Americans.

Your vote is your voice, use it.
