Election reform movement braves New Hampshire winter to press issue into Presidential elections
Democracy, elections, and voting at Democracy Chronicles
Democracy Chronicles is going to New Hampshire! We are filming interviews and the march across New Hampshire by the NHRebellion and election reform leader Lawrence Lessig. We are also travelling with the campaign of Jeff Kuzon that has allowed us exclusive access to film their campaign for Congress to represent New York’s 7th District. Below is information on Monday’s events. We will see you there!
We are walking 185 miles across New Hampshire to ensure that in the 2016 primaries, every presidential candidate is made to answer this one question: “How are YOU going to end the system of corruption in Washington?”
Election Reform Movement:
New Hampshire is in a unique position to restore integrity, transparency, and responsibility to a broken and corrupt political system. The NH Rebellion is a movement to leverage that opportunity. The facts are simple: New Hampshire holds the first presidential primary, the voters of New Hampshire are fiercely independent, and New Hampshire is one of the only states that has an express right of the people to revolution within its Constitution. These three facts have led the us to launch the NH Rebellion.
