City/State Government Info

State Government

The constitution of 1784 provides for the governor to serve a two-year term. The state has the largest legislature in the country, consisting of a 24-seat Senate and a 400-seat Assembly. New Hampshire is represented in the U.S. Congress by two senators and two representatives, and has four electoral votes.

As the state capital and county seat for Merrimack County, Concord is headquarters to numerous state, county, local and federal agencies and also home to a number of major law firms and professional organizations that work with government.

Every four years the city springs to national attention during the presidential primary and is always cranking into high gear in anticipation of the next primary. Presidential hopefuls have begun descending upon Concord and surrounding areas to court residents in the hopes of garnering a victory in the prestigious First in the Nation New Hampshire Primary. With the exception of 1992 and 2008, no presidential candidate has gone on to win the presidency without first winning our state primary.

Most New Hampshire towns still adhere to the traditional selectmen form of government, and each spring residents gather at annual Town Meetings to discuss and vote on the town budget and other municipal issues.
