The International Commission against the Death Penalty warmly welcomes the New Hampshire Senate´s historic vote on Thursday 30 May 2019 and the preceding vote by the state´s House of Representatives on 23 May, which abolishes the death penalty in the state.

This vote overrides an earlier veto by Governor Chris Sununu to earlier votes calling for an end to the death penalty.
