On the night before the New Hampshire election, many voters in New Hampshire will be asking the same question: of the many candidates on the ballot, which viable candidates will vote to reduce the size of government? By then it’s too late to research the candidates, so we've done the research for you.
When do I vote?
Vote on Tuesday, November 8th or before November 8th by using an absentee ballot.
Yes. Liberty Ballot evaluates candidates based on their small government stance and based on their viability. There are some non-viable pro-liberty candidates on the ballot.
If I am not currently registered to vote, can I still vote on Election Day?
Yes. Register at your polling location directly before you vote. If you have a government-issued ID, bring it with you.
May I load this information onto my cellular phone and bring it into a voting booth?
Yes. If there is no cellular phone coverage at your voting location, download the sample ballot to your phone. If your voting location has cellular coverage, you will be able to view the sample ballot via this website.
May I take a printout of my ballot with me into a voting booth?
Yes. If you take a sheet of paper into a voting booth, please remember to take it with you when you leave.
How do I help spread the word about Liberty Ballot?
Some good options are emailing the website to your friends, co-workers and family; posting links to the website on Facebook; following and retweeting Liberty Ballot on Twitter; and spreading the word on Instagram.
Why isn’t candidate X marked on the ballot?
There are a few possible reasons, including: it’s not a contested race,
Liberty Ballot thinks another candidate is better, there are multiple good candidates in the race, and there are no liberty candidates in the race.
Why are there fewer candidates marked than allowed in a race?
Bullet voting for fewer than the maximum number of allowed candidates in multi-seat districts is a proud New Hampshire tradition. If you think strongly about an additional candidate, feel free to also vote for that candidate (but be careful not to exceed the maximum number of allowed votes in that race).
Why are there races without candidates marked?
Liberty Ballot does not make recommendations in all races. Perhaps there was no good candidate in a particular race. Your judgment may vary.
Is Liberty Ballot affiliated with any group or organization?
No. Liberty Ballot is 100% independent. Liberty Ballot makes recommendations, not endorsements. Several people are involved in researching and vetting candidates.
Why does Liberty Ballot recommend a Yes vote on Question 1?
Question 1 eliminates the county position of Register of Probate. The duties of the Register of Probate were eliminated when there was a reorganization under Speaker Bill O'Brien's leadership to save taxpayers money. Year after year since that taxpayer reform, no one has proposed bringing back duties for the Register of Probate. During the current legislative session, liberty Republicans sponsored a Constitutional Amendment to completely eliminate the outdated position. Republicans in the legislature overwhelmingly backed the liberty Republican sponsors in passing the Constitutional Amendment on to the voters for your consideration.
Why does Liberty Ballot recommend a Yes vote on Question 2?
There have been a great deal of reforms that passed the New Hampshire House but died in the New Hampshire State Senate. Question 2 is the solution to get popular reforms like term limits and cannabis legalization passed into law. Question 2 allows the people to pass major reforms without support from the Senate.
