If you’ve ever wondered if a single vote can make a difference, I have your answer.

Control of the New Hampshire State House of Representatives hangs on a single vote.

After recounts of several close races, the Secretary of State has now confirmed that there are 199 Democrats and 200 Republicans in the new House, which will be sworn in on January 5, 2023. That leaves one seat unfilled.

That race ended up in a tie.

While the House has the constitutional authority to put the matter to a vote of its members (anyone want to guess the result of that particular matter?), it appears that the voters in that district will get another chance to go to the ballot box, with the balance of the State House potentially at stake.
