Special Election Set for Tuesday in Laconia

Voters in Laconia will head to the polls on Tuesday for a special election to fill a New Hampshire House seat.

The position was left vacant following the death of Donald Flanders, a Republican who was serving his ninth term when he passed away last September.

The race pits Les Cartier, a Republican and retired hazardous waste coordinator in the state Fire Marshall’s Office, against Democrat Phil Spagnuolo, a substance misuse recovery coach.

Republicans currently hold a 43-seat advantage in the 400-member New Hampshire House.

Democrats are hoping to continue a string of special election victories from 2017.
