Cook PVI EVEN[1]

New Hampshire's 1st congressional district covers the southeastern part of New Hampshire. The district consists of three general areas: Greater Manchester, the Seacoast and the Lakes Region.

It is represented in the United States House of Representatives by Democrat Carol Shea-Porter.

Politically, the 1st district may be the most competitive congressional district in the country.[citation needed] It has a Cook Partisan Voting Index of EVEN, indicating that it generally votes in line with the country as a whole.[citation needed] Of the nine districts nationwide with a CPVI of EVEN, this is the only district that has ousted three incumbents in the past ten years, and is also the only district of the nine where no candidate has won more than 54% of the vote since 2004.[citation needed]
