The latest in New Hampshire

Nov. 17, 2021

On Nov. 16, the New Hampshire House Special Committee on Redistricting voted to advance Republicans’ proposed congressional map to the full state House of Representatives, which will take it up when it reconvenes in January.

The plan is a doozy, too, as it 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 were quick to denounce 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. Democrats have proposed an alternative map that barely changes the current configuration and features two highly competitive seats, but with Republicans in full control of New Hampshire redistricting, the Democratic plan was dead on arrival.
