New Hampshire State Guide

New Hampshire is known as the "Granite State," a nickname that refers not only to the quarries that once drove the state's industry, but to the stoic self-sufficiency of its people. This independent spirit is also exemplified by New Hampshire's official motto, "Live Free or Die." Since 1952, the New Hampshire primary has been considered the proving ground for Republicans and Democrats seeking the nominations of their party.
