In 2011, four special elections were held for the New Hampshire General Court. These elections were called to fill vacancies in the New Hampshire House of Representatives--Hillsborough District 3, Hillsborough District 4, Strafford District 3, and Rockingham District 14.

How vacancies are filled

If there is a vacancy in the New Hampshire General Court, a special election must be held to fill the vacant seat. It's up to the governor to call for an election and to set an election date as soon as possible. There are no deadlines set by the state constitution on special elections.[1][2]
