Special Elections November 7 in Manchester and Sullivan County

November 3, 2017

On Tuesday, November 7, Manchester voters will elect a mayor, and two state representative seats will be filled.

Incumbent Manchester mayor Ted Gatsas is being challenged by Joyce Craig, whom he narrowly defeated in 2015. Craig has been endorsed by EMILY’s List, a national PAC supporting pro-abortion Democratic women, and Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s Action Fund.

Residents of Manchester ward 8 (Hillsborough County district 15) will choose between Republican Albert E. MacArthur, Jr. and Democrat Erika Connors. The New Hampshire Right to Life Political Action Committee has endorsed Mr. MacArthur. Memorial High School is the polling location for Ward 8.

Republican Margaret Drye is opposed by Democrat Brian Sullivan in the race for Sullivan 1’s seat in the New Hampshire House. NHRTL-PAC has endorsed Ms. Drye. The Republican’s name might ring a bell for you; Margaret Drye has deep roots in advocacy for families, life, and education (she homeschooled her nine children). Check the Secretary of State’s Election web site for polling locations in the district’s towns: Plainfield, Grantham, Cornish, and Springfield.
