5 election law complaints against Hampton have been filed with the NHDOJ - 5.3.24.

Five election law complaints were filed with the NH department of justice on Friday, May 3, 2024, with a copy to the NH secretary of state's office. These complaints are regarding the March 12, 2024, Hampton, NH town election and the subsequent citizen petitioned recount that occurred on March 27, 2024. https://rumble.com/v4t1m2f-hampton-town-election-law-complaints-filed-with-the-nhdoj.html


Complaint 1 - March 12, 2024, several election box ballot seals either missing or incomplete. 


Complaint 2 - March 26, 2024, the lead petitioner went to hand deliver an additional request to the town clerk.  During that time, it was noted that there were open (unsealed) ballot boxes that had been used in the March 12, 2024, election.  Two photos were taken.


Complaint 3 - March 27, 2024, at the recount there were a total of 30 ballot boxes, only 16 of which were examined. 


Complaint 4 - Based on the April 23, 2024, review of the Sealed Ballot Boxes - Chain of Custody Storage Log for the Town of Hampton, March 12, 2024, town election; the following was found:  there was actually a total of 47 election ballot boxes, and again, at the recount only 16 boxes out of 47 were open and examined, leaving 31 boxes unexamined during the March 27, 2024, recount.  Most of these unexamined ballots also did not contain the proper seal affixed to them for statutory sign off procedures by the selectmen, the moderator, and the town clerk.


Complaint 5 - May 2, 2024, per discussion with the Town Clerk, 45 boxes came from LHS; however, review of pictures of the ballot boxes evidenced that there were no shipping labels from LHS to the Town of Hampton Clerk's office. 


To date, the town has denied physical review of ALL ballot boxes used in the March 12, 2024, Hampton town election.


All republican members of the House Election Committee and all members of the Senate Election Committee have been notified by their published email.


The following requests have been made to the NH Department of Justice: 1. allow public review of the 47 ballot boxes used in the March 2024 town election process, and

2. the department perform a forensic audit of all materials contained in the 47 ballot boxes used in the March 2024 town election process. The audit will be open for the public to attend and oversee.


A public Record Letter of audit findings was hand delivered to the Hampton Town Clerk on May 2, 2024, with additional copies to the Board of Selectmen and the Town Moderator.

EVERY TOWN, EVERY CITY.
