LWVUS: Join the protest in New Hampshire on Tuesday against the Election Integrity Commission

As many of you already know, on Tuesday, Sept. 12,  the Pence-Kobach sham Election Integrity Commission will meet at St. Anselm College in Manchester, NH. 

This Commission has one goal in mind: laying the groundwork for voter suppression by purging eligible voters from the rolls.  There are no tickets left to attend the session itself, but you can help voice the League’s objections to the Election “Integrity” Commission’s work .

Plan to join the protest before the session from 8 to 10 a.m. at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, St. Anslem College, 100 St. Anslem Drive, Manchester.  Wear League pins and t-shirts if you have them.  Bring signs.

Information about the protest is here

Let’s make it clear we oppose this commission’s bogus mission!

 

If you can’t protest, you can watch the meeting streaming live HERE: https://www.whitehouse.gov/live
