New Hampshire and direct democracy

Statewide, New Hampshire enjoys just one of the available seven forms of direct democracy. If the New Hampshire legislature places a constitutional amendment on the statewide ballot, voters can ratify or reject it.

The New Hampshire State Constitution is the supreme law of the state, followed by the New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated. The State Constitution is the nation's only state constitution which acknowledges the right of revolution, and one of the few that does not expressly mandate the provision of a public school system.
