My August 27 Letter to the Editor about student voting
As published in Fosters Daily Democrat on August 27, 2018:

To the Editor:

UNH students began returning to campus on Friday, August 23rd. They were greeted with signs which said "Welcome Home." New Hampshire is their home for however many years it takes them to complete their studies at UNH. And, even though we do a terrible job of making talented and ambitious young people feel welcome, many UNH alumni do choose to stay here after they graduate. Even those who move away still feel strongly connected to the Granite State.

Instead of trying to run candidates and advocate policies which actually appeal to young people, the New Hampshire Republicans pushed two short-sighted and unconstitutional bills, SB 3 and HB 1264, through the legislature this year, with the express aim of preventing college students from voting here in New Hampshire. Both those bills tried to discourage students from voting by creating illogical and contradictory definitions of the words "resident" and "inhabitant." However, all US citizens still have the right to vote where they live, and it doesn't matter why they moved there. Students who live on the UNH campus (or elsewhere in Durham) are members of the Durham community just like everyone else who lives there, and they still have the constitutional right to vote there if they so choose.

If you are a citizen of Durham or Madbury, regardless of why you moved here, I hope you will exercise your right to vote in the State Primary on September 11th. And, I would be honored if you chose to vote for me.

Timothy Horrigan, NH state representative, Strafford County District #6.

My October 26, 2018 Letter to the Editor about student voting  & voting the whole ballot
As published in Fosters Daily Democrat on October 26, 2018:

To the Editor:

I am asking all citizens of Durham and Madbury to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Durham's polls are open from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Oyster River High School and Madbury's from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the town offices.

Who is a citizen of Durham or Madbury? You are a citizen of a New Hampshire town if you are a U.S. citizen and the town is your residence right now. It doesn't matter why you moved here. It doesn't matter if you think you might be moving somewhere else someday.

Two confusing and unconstitutional bills (SB3 & HB 1264) were recently and mistakenly passed by my Republican colleagues in Concord with the express aim of discouraging students from voting. However, UNH students who live on-campus absolutely have the right to vote in Durham. Students who live off-campus likewise can vote wherever their off-campus residence happens to be. This was definitively established almost half a century ago (way back when I was in school) by two landmark supreme court cases, one in the US Supreme Court (Symm vs. US in 1979) and the other in our own New Hampshire Supreme Court (Newburger vs. Peterson, in 1972.)

If re-elected to the New Hampshire House, I will be sponsoring bills next year to overturn the two anti-voting bills, SB 3 & HB 1264. Please vote on Nov. 6, and please vote all the way up and down the ballot. You can find my name and my office about two-thirds of the way down the ballot, alongside the names of Cam Kenney, Marjorie Smith, Judith Spang and Janet Wall. Please vote for all 5 of us.

State Rep. Timothy Horrigan, Durham
