Ensuring All Families Have the Same Protections
John Lynch continued New Hampshire's long tradition of opposing discrimination by signing into law legislation creating civil unions. The landmark legislation ensures all New Hampshire families are afforded the same legal protections and are treated fairly.

Gov. John Lynch ensured New Hampshire will continue to have fair, open elections by signing legislation eliminating straight ticket voting, which had been blamed for causing some confusion amongst voters.

Gov. Lynch again opposed clearly unconstitutional legislation stripping the right of some, including college students, to vote in New Hampshire.
Prohibiting New Hampshire from Participating in Real ID
