2008

On November 4, 2008, Kappler won re-election to the New Hampshire House of Representatives from the Rockingham 2 District, which sent three representatives to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, by finishing with the third-highest vote total in the election. Kappler received 2,544 votes. The other winning candidates from Rockingham 2 were Franklin Bishop (R) with 2,718 votes and Kathleen Hoelzel (R) with 2,630 votes. Because the 2008 race in Rockingham 2 had three candidates for three available seats, Kappler and the other two winners essentially ran unopposed. Additionally, 4 votes went to "others," who were presumably write-in candidates.[4]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Hampshire

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
