Governor Sununu Statement Following Unanimous House Election Law Committee Vote on HB 541

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement after the House Election Law Committee unanimously voted to recommend HB 541, relative to allocating electoral college electors based on the national popular vote, be referred to interim study.

"This is a bipartisan referendum against Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan's call to abolish the Electoral College. That type of politically driven sentiment would only serve to destroy the voice of New Hampshire voters in the election of our national leaders."
