CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A veteran New Hampshire legislator is not seeking re-election this November, saying she wants to spend more time with her family.

State Sen. Bette Lasky, a Democrat from Nashua, announced her plans Monday.

She’s served four terms as a senator and five terms in the House.

Last year, Lasky, along with the American Civil Liberties Union and Republican Rep. Neal Kurk, sued Secretary of State Bill Gardner to block voter information from being sent to President Donald Trump’s commission on election fraud. Gardner was a commission member.

An agreement was later reached where the state would send millions of scanned, unsearchable images of voter data to the commission. The panel has since disbanded.

Lasky also has been an advocate for women’s access to full health services and paycheck fairness.
