Now is our moment!
For more than two years, we've been working and waiting for an opportunity to repeal same-sex marriage in New Hampshire. News reports now indicate that the vote will take place in February.
Thanks to your efforts, and those of many others, a majority in both houses now supports marriage and is expected to vote YES on House Bill 437 to repeal same-sex marriage.
Unfortunately, Governor Lynch—once a defender of marriage—has now become an unbending advocate of same-sex marriage and is expected to veto the repeal bill.
Now is the time that we need to be talking to legislators, letting them know how strongly their constituents feel about marriage.

A personal phone call from a constituent is one of the most powerful and effective means of contacting elected officials, especially state house members who answer their own phones. Please take a moment to make a few phone calls today. Tell them it's time to follow through with the mandate voters gave them in 2010 and repeal same-sex marriage.
You can also contact your state senator and representatives by email using NOM's online advocacy system. In 5 minutes or less, you can send a personalized message to your elected officials. Click here to send your email now.
HB437 is a compromise bill—but it's a compromise that respects and restores the definition of marriage, while also allowing existing same-sex marriages to remain intact and providing benefits through civil unions.
Every vote counts, so please contact your legislators right away. I'll be sure to keep you up to date as things continue to develop.
