The Highs and Lows of NH's Civic Health

A woman hands an elderly man a bag of groceries on his porch.

Civic health extends far beyond voting and attending town meetings; it also includes volunteering, participating in public service, and helping out your neighbors. According to the 2020 New Hampshire Civic Health Index, the Granite State ranks high in some areas pertaining to civic health, but also comes out near the bottom in others. We talk about social trust, political behavior, and community building.
