The latest in New Hampshire

Jan. 5, 2022

On Jan. 5, the New Hampshire state House voted 186-164 to approve Republicans’ proposed congressional map, sending it to the state Senate.

The plan proposes some of the biggest changes to New Hampshire’s congressional map since the late 1800s. It removes several Democratic-leaning communities from the 1st District and gives them to the 2nd District, creating one more clearly Republican-leaning seat and one more clearly Democratic-leaning seat. Both would still be competitive, but likely only in extremely good years for the opposite party.

Democrats have denounced the map as an example of gerrymandering. Since both of New Hampshire’s current House members are Democrats, Democratic Rep. Chris Pappas would likely be forced out under the plan.
