GOP proposed redistricting map would shake up congressional districts, switch Durham to NH02

GOP proposed redistricting map would shake up congressional districts, switch Durham to NH02

Ben MacKillop November 22, 2021
The GOP-controlled Committee on Redistricting for the State of New Hampshire released a proposed map early last week ahead of the first hearing on the redistricting process. The proposed map has major ramifications for the University of New Hampshire (UNH) students and community voters as it would shift Durham and some neighboring towns from New Hampshire’s 1st congressional district (NH01) to the 2nd district (NH02). These changes would give Republicans a firm advantage in NH01 going into the 2022 midterm elections while giving Democrats a stronghold in NH02.
