2012 General Grades State Rep. Cheshire County

by NH Firearms Coalition on October 31, 2012

The NHFC is pleased to offer this Election Guide for NH Governor, Congress, Executive Council, State Senate and Representative, and County Sheriff races.

These grades are the result of each candidate’s answers to an extensive questionnaire and any available voting records. In addition, we may also use any other reliable information regarding a candidate’s views on Second Amendment issues, such as to downgrade a candidate for public support of other anti-gun candidates. NHFC focuses solely on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and these grades only reflect this single issue. Examples of the candidate surveys can be found on our website.

The NHFC, Inc. hopes that you will find this information useful when you vote in our state’s General Elections on November 6th.
