The midterms might be over, but there's yet another important election coming up in New Hampshire: state lawmakers will soon pick our next Secretary of State. Bill Gardner has had the job for more than 40 years but now - he faces TWO challengers.  We talk to all three candidates, and discuss how lately that office has become more prominent, and political.  This show is hosted by Lauren Chooljian, NHPR's politics and policy reporter for the State of Democracy project.

We sit down with NHPR's Civics 101, our podcast refresher course on the basics of our democracy.  The team has dug into how midterm elections impact us, the local and national offices on the ballot, and what makes midterms unique in New Hampshire.

The state Attorney General's office launches a criminal investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct involving three Dartmouth College professors.  A report regarding sexual abuse by faculty and staff at St. Paul’s School contains new allegations against five individuals.  And residents struggle to recover from the fourth-largest power outage in state history.

Before President Trump, candidates for the highest office in the country have disclosed some of their tax returns. There's currently no federal law requiring them to do so. Now one state lawmaker is considering crafting legislation that would require candidates to disclose their tax returns in order to be on the ballot in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

That lawmaker is Democratic Representative Suzanne Smith. She spoke earlier today with NHPR's Peter Biello.
