New Hampshire Primary Elections: September 13, 2022


This year may be the most consequential election in our history. It starts next week with the New Hampshire primaries on Tuesday, September 13. NEA-New Hampshire’s Government Relations Committee and Executive Board have recommended 51 candidates in this year’s contested primaries. The complete list appears below.  This year’s list includes 38 Democrats and 13 Republicans.

“We need elected officials who will work together to ensure our educators are fairly compensated, our schools are fully funded, and every child receives a fair and equitable education,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “These elected officials start their journey as candidates who are committed to the fight to protect and increase funding for public schools and make sure our students have the tools they need to succeed.”

This election cycle to far too important to sit out.
“Your vote is needed to prevent radical legislation that slashes education funding, takes away resources from students who need it most, and makes it harder to recruit and retain qualified educators,” said Tuttle. “It’s time to vote your future.”
