Citizen Voices®

Citizen Voices makes it possible for people to take part in how policies are made in New Hampshire in an easy and convenient way: online.

We post clear ‘yes or no’ questions about hot issues facing the Granite State, inviting citizens to share their opinions. We analyze the discussion, summarizing the results in an easy-to-read report which we then deliver to elected officials at key points in the policy-making process, often including in-person presentation at a public hearing or emailing the New Hampshire House or Senate ahead of votes on related bills. Click here to learn more about how it's done.
