Constitution

New Hampshire voters cast 828,305 votes in the 2020 general election, putting overall state turnout at about 75.5%. Joe Biden won New Hampshire’s four (4) electoral votes with 52.71% of the vote.  New Hampshire has consistently voted for Democrat presidential candidates since 2004, even though Donald Trump almost won the state in 2016, coming short by a very narrow 0.4% margin of defeat.

New Hampshire has a bicameral legislature with 24 senators and 400 representatives. Party control of both chambers has shifted from party to party over the past five (5) years. Governor Chris Sununu (R) will be eligible for re-election in 2022.

Election Integrity

In the wake of the 2020 elections and resulting lack of confidence in the outcome, state legislatures across the country reviewed their election laws and proposed and/or enacted certain modifications to existing law. While our country remains bitterly divided, a battle is taking place as to whether these laws suppress the vote or expand access to the ballot box. Many believe claims of voter suppression from the Left are part of a larger effort to federalize our elections. But the U.S. Constitution grants state legislatures authority to establish state election laws.
