Bill Gardner Has Been Re-Elected as Secretary of State.
On December 5, 2018, Gardner narrowly won re-election to his 22nd term as Secretary of State.
The combined New Hampshire House and Senate membership voted to re-elect him on their second ballot.

On the first vote, Gardner won 208 – 207 over challenger Colin Van Ostern.
That was judged inconclusive on a ruling that the winner needed 50% of the members voting plus one.
With 215 members voting, the ruling was that the winner would need 209 votes.

In second vote, Gardner won 209 to 205, exceeding the 50% plus one threshold by one vote.
