Where is YOUR Voice?
New Hampshire has many voices and many opinions. As of April 27th we have 916,808 registered voters in this state and the breakdown of their affiliations is pretty close. See the pie chart to the left that I created to help visualize the differences in the affiliations...Hard to see the difference, eh? That's right we;re split pretty evenly with 30% of registered voters listing themselves as Democrats, 32% as Republicans, and 38% "Undeclared" or Independent. If an entire party parted for the same official, it would not be enough to override the Independent vote.
But how do you, the Independent voice, make sure that your voice is heard? Or are you okay with being stuck having to choose between two parties you don't want to label yourself as?
In order to break out of the rut of having to choose between whatever person the Parties have chosen for you, you MUST do your part. You MUST give your name to a nomination form and put more candidates on your ballot.
Download my nomination form and fill it in. Mail it back to me and give yourself a CHOICE this election season... Show the established "norms" that we're not going to sit back and take politicians who do what their told by a party anymore.
Tell the established "norms" that we want the Independence that New Hampshire demands is ours!
That we want the FREEDOM of choice!
That we want a Governor who answers to the Citizens of New Hampshire and NOT to a Party Representative that tells them which candidate they must support (even if they can't stomach endorsing them).
Nominate a candidate who will be in the State House for YOU.
Nomination Form (NEEDS TO BE MAILED BY JULY 1ST in order to ensure delivery in time to make it on the ballot!)
How to fill in the Nomination Form
Top Section (in case this doesn't come pre-printed on page, some systems not showing it):
Political Organization: independent
Name: Jilletta Jarvis
Domicile: 394 Main St Sandown NH 03873

- The first line is for your Signature.
- The second line is for you to write your name (so they can read it and verify you are registered)
- The third line is for your address (where you live and are registered)
- The last line is for your mailing address if it is different.
- There is a space for Ward - this only applies if you live in one of NH's cities (I do not know what makes these places cities versus towns like Salem and Derry which are not on the list...) and have a voting ward:
- Claremont (3 wards)
- Concord (10 wards)
- Dover (6 wards)
- Franklin (3 wards)
- Keene (5 wards)
- Laconia (6 wards)
- Lebanon (3 wards)
- Manchester (12 wards)

If you are not in one of the above towns you can leave the ward blank.
That's it! You're done! Now you just need to mail it back to me at the address listed as my "Domicile" in the top section! I will collect them all and alphabetize them according to the regulations of the Secretary of State's Office.
