We're watching one legislative special election this week.
New Hampshire State House District Grafton 16
With 400 members at full strength, the New Hampshire House of Representatives is the largest legislative body in the United States. The narrowly-divided chamber currently has 199 Republicans, 196 Democrats.
There are two independents, Reps. Shaun Filiault and Dan Hynes. Both became unaffiliated when they left major political parties in June. There are also three vacancies, including the one on the ballot Tuesday.
Members serve two-year terms; the next regular elections are in 2024.
District Grafton 16 is located in Enfield, a town in the west central part of the state. Democrat Joshua Adjutant resigned earlier this year for health reasons.
Adjutant ran unopposed in 2022. While the district was extremely competitive over the decade prior to that, those races are not comparable due to boundary changes in redistricting.
The nominees are Democrat David Fracht and Republican John Keane.
Polls close at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
