In the recent referendum, 81 percent of New Hampshire’s voters voted to approve the addition of just 22 words to the state’s constitution:
“Right to Privacy: An individual’s right to live free from governmental intrusion in private or personal information is natural, essential, and inherent.”
10 other states—Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina and Washington—have similar provisions expressly referring to a right to privacy.

Here is a message to the state legislatures of the other 39 states: “The entire country is look at you and expecting similar resolutions to protect the privacy of your state’s citizens.”
