Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed House Bill 706-FN-A, which intended to establish an independent redistricting commission for New Hampshire.
Distrustful of allowing the peoples’ elected representatives to evermore redistrict, Democrat majorities in the House and Senate chose to pass the responsibility for redistricting the state to a commission comprised of one-third hyper-partisan members chosen by elected Democrats, one-third hyper-partisan members chosen by elected Republicans and a third group comprised ostensibly of apolitical “independents:” unicorns who would be selected by the hyper-partisan political members of the commission through a secret process not subject to review through New Hampshire’s right-to-know law.
