Bernie Sanders

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, shown speaking to supporters at a Concord event in March 2019.

Allowing drive-by voting by non-residents is apparently not nearly enough for some Democrats, both here and in the current presidential derby.

Socialist Bernie Sanders started the ball rolling a few weeks ago when he said that felons behind bars, including the Boston Marathon bomber, should be allowed to vote. Some other presidential hopefuls quickly said, “Me, too!”

They are now being joined by New Hampshire Democrats who want to change state law to allow imprisoned convicts to vote their convictions. Vermont and Maine, we are told, allow this, so New Hampshire should.

Bernie won New Hampshire in 2016 without a single vote from state prison. But with so many competitors this time around, he apparently feels the need to expand his outreach inwards.
