Kenneth Johnson and Dante Scala of the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of NH and Andrew Smith, who directs the Survey Center at UNH, discuss demographic forces that are reshaping the New Hampshire landscape. They report that more than 20 percent of potential voters in the 2020 New Hampshire primary were either not old enough to vote in 2016 or resided somewhere other than New Hampshire.

Democratic presidential primary turnout in New Hampshire may hit record highs in 2020. For the full story, click here.
