New Hampshire has abolished capital punishment.

The state Senate voted Thursday morning to override Gov. Chris Sununu’s veto of the bill to repeal the death penalty. The vote follows the New Hampshire House’s vote last week to overturn the veto.

Capital punishment is “archaic, costly, discriminatory, and final,” said Sen. Melanie Levesque, a Democrat from Nashua. “This is time to end it.”
