Title: Low Salience Races
Post by: Retiree on September 07, 2017, 05:15:45 am
So obviously the New Hampshire house is the third largest legislative body in the English speaking world. As such the races are likely not too complex. However, if the state legislature is so informal, what about the traditionally low salience races like school board or county recorder, how do those types of things work in New Hampshire?

Granted part of my query is slothful as I could look much of this up, but I am curious how "free staters" have faired in these types of endeavors from a practical standpoint.

I know a lot of people who've been elected to local offices: school board, budget committee, select board, etc. Frequently these positions are uncontested, and town leadership is grateful for anyone willing to help. The Free Stater who died recently, Robert Leustek, was on the select board and highly regarded in town: http://www.sentinelsource.com/news/local/winchester-man-killed-in-massachusetts-crash/article_b3ac1a52-df89-526e-8199-263532daaeed.html.
