MANCHESTER, N.H.-Protesters holding "Vote Free or Die" signs are greeting members of President Donald Trump's commission on voter fraud in New Hampshire.

The signs are a riff on New Hampshire's "Live Free or Die" motto, and protesters from the New Hampshire Campaign for Voting Rights say the commission is a sham designed to promote voter suppression.

The panel is holding its second meeting Tuesday at Saint Anselm College to investigate the Republican president's unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 elections.

Joining the protesters was former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, a Democrat and founder of Let America Vote. He says the commission was created to substantiate the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president and should be dismantled.
