In this data snapshot, authors Kenneth Johnson, Andrew Smith, and Dante Scala discuss changes in the New Hampshire voting population since 2016 and its implications for the 2022 mid-term election. Once again, New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate contest is one of a handful that will determine control of Congress. The electorate that will choose between Democratic incumbent Maggie Hassan and Republican challenger Don Bolduc is quite different than the one Hassan faced just six years ago, when she won by only 1,017 votes. Nearly 28 percent of potential Granite State voters on November 8th were either too young to vote or did not live in New Hampshire in 2016. This figure underscores the rapid, substantial turnover among New Hampshire voters, an important point often overlooked by pundits and prognosticators.
