Bill Christie, Ben Siracusa Hillman, and Jessica Bellemore of our Concord
Office are being honored with the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union's
Bill of Rights Award at a dinner this Sunday, October 5.
The award is in recognition of their successful litigation of a case in
Strafford Superior Court, where they obtained a preliminary and permanent
injunction prohibiting enforcement of a 2012 law. The law required placement
of inaccurate and misleading information on the voter registration form
and threatened to disenfranchise voters who live in New Hampshire, particularly
The Superior Court held that the law was an unconstitutional infringement
on the fundamental right to vote.
In addition, Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is being honored more generally
for its "zealous advocacy against restrictive ballot access laws
that hinder voter choice."
Way to go guys!
