Voters in New Hampshire will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the November 4, 2014 elections.

New Hampshire is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Unaffiliated voters may vote in the primary, but in order to do so, they have to choose a party before voting. This changes their status from unaffiliated to affiliated with that party, unless they fill out a card to return to undeclared status.[3]

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Jeanne Shaheen (D). Shaheen was first elected in 2008.

Race Background

On March 14, 2014, Brown announced in a speech at a major GOP conference in New Hampshire the launch of his exploratory committee, which allowed him to hire staff and raise money for a Senate run.[4]


Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
