CONCORD, NH – While drawing the order of party column rotation for the General Election ballot on Thursday, July 21, in accordance with RSA 656:5, HB 544 (Chapter 252; 2022), there was a misdraw resulting in a conflict in party placement in column two. As a result, the random party placement in column two will be redrawn on Friday, July 22, at 1:00 PM. The first column of the ballot has been correctly drawn; only column two will be redrawn on Friday.

“After the drawing took place today, we noticed the drawing for column two resulted in the same party appearing in multiple columns in the same district. The only way to fairly correct this is to redraw. Both political parties have been notified,” said spokesman Anna Fay.

The Democratic and Republican Chairs have been notified and invited to Friday’s drawing.

Members of the media and public are welcome to attend. Thank you for your patience.
