What The Future Looks Like For Voter ID Laws

Tracy Lee Carroll, NHPR

For the first time, Granite State voters will be expected to show photo ID at the polls in November.  New Hampshire now one of eleven states that require or request photo identification to cast a ballot. 

But that number continues to change. In Pennsylvania, for example, a judge recently halted parts of that state’s strict photo ID law

This past weekend in New Hampshire was full of two things that NHPR's Keith Shields follows very closely: politics and marathons.

Shields is executive producer of The Exchange and a 27 time marathoner. He joins All Things Considered host Brady Carlson to – pardon the pun – run through the intersection of marathon culture and political culture, up to and including this election.

After all, we have one of the nation’s highest median incomes and one of its most educated workforces, the foundations for economic success.

New Filings Show Finances for Candidates, But Not For Independent Groups

The political ad barrage is here. Watch a TV show or check out a YouTube video and you’re likely to see the commercials. Same goes for fliers in the mail or yard signs on street corners.

Those ads and signs mean campaign money is flowing into the state, and this past Wednesday, New Hampshire candidates filed their latest campaign finance reports. 

NHPR correspondent Brian Wallstin joins All Things Considered host Brady Carlson with a little of what’s in those reports.

Reflecting on a Decade of New Hampshire Reporting

Ryan Lessard for NHPR

We close this week with a farewell, to a reporter who has caused more than his share of driveway moments.

In his more than 11 years at NHPR, Dan Gorenstein has hit the campaign trail with presidential candidates, tracked historic debates at the statehouse, even followed the supply chain of mozzarella cheese once for a series on food. He has found stories of Granite Staters that sometimes left us laughing – and sometimes left us with lumps in our throats.
