CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A bipartisan committee assessing voter confidence in New Hampshire made more than a dozen recommendations Thursday to improve what it deemed a strong election system worthy of public support. In its final report, the committee concluded that New Hampshire elections are well-run, the results are accurate and there is no evidence of widespread fraud. Its 14 recommendations include several aimed at local election officials, including increased training, more robust recruitment and legislation to protect them against harassment. Other suggestions addressed election procedures, such as purchasing new ballot counting devices, expanding post-election audits and improving the absentee ballot process.
