"Granny D Day" bill will be signed in Concord, NH tomorrow

New Hampshire's Gov. John Lynch will sign SB 173 tomorrow, proclaiming January 24 as Granny D Day in the Granite State. The signing will take place 11 a.m. in the Executive Council Chamber at the state capitol building in Concord, and the public is welcome to attend to honor a remarkable and inspiring woman.

A bronze bust of Granny D will also be on display, before heading to the Granny D archives at Keene State College in Keene, NH, where it will be formally unveiled at the opening of the archives in September.

New Hampshire clean elections activists have long campaigned for public funding, and despite state and federal level setbacks, are still dedicated to carrying on their work. If you'd like to know more about clean elections in New Hampshire or this specific event, please email
