<p align="justify">''Located in the New England region of the Northeast United States, New Hampshire has 10 counties and 234 cities and towns. Bordered by Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Quebec and the Atlantic Ocean, New Hampshire was named after the southern English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire is a “Dillon Rule” state, meaning that the state retains all powers not specifically granted to municipalities. Even so, the legislature strongly favors local control, particularly with regard to land use regulations. Currently, New Hampshire has two members of the U.S. Senate, two Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 400 members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives and 24 members of the New Hampshire State Senate. As of September 2013, New Hampshire is one of 13 states that is under divided government and does not have state government trifecta.''</p></td></tr>

|style="color:#000;"|'''State legislators in New Hampshire seek education amendment'''
+
'''May 2008.'''Some state legislators in [[New Hampshire]] are working to place a [[ballot measure]] before the state's voters in [[New Hampshire 2008 ballot measures|November 2008]] to create a new [[constitutional amendment]] that would define an adequate education, determine the cost of providing an adequate education to all New Hampshire public school students and fund that full amount.  The amendment might alleviate local disparities in educational opportunity.
+
  
To pass the House, the proposal needs the support of 237 lawmakers. Both chambers must ultimately approve such an amendment by 60% to put it on the statewide ballot, where 2/3 of voters would have to approve it for it to become part of the state's constitution.[http://www.concordmonitor.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080502/FRONTPAGE/805020403/0/NEWS05 ''New school funding amendment presented'']

Welcome to New Hampshire on Ballotpedia!


Located in the New England region of the Northeast United States, New Hampshire has 10 counties and 234 cities and towns. Bordered by Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Quebec and the Atlantic Ocean, New Hampshire was named after the southern English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire is a “Dillon Rule” state, meaning that the state retains all powers not specifically granted to municipalities. Even so, the legislature strongly favors local control, particularly with regard to land use regulations. Currently, New Hampshire has two members of the U.S. Senate, two Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 400 members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives and 24 members of the New Hampshire State Senate. As of September 2013, New Hampshire is one of 13 states that is under divided government and does not have state government trifecta.
