  2. ^ Resigned to take a seat in a federal court.
  3. ^ Resigned to take a seat on the United States District Court for New Hampshire.
  4. ^ a b As president of the state senate, acted as governor for unexpired term.
  5. ^ a b c After having apparently won election to the Senate, Wyman was appointed to serve out the last 4 days of retiring Senator Norris Cotton's term.

Cotton was reappointed to his old seat in the mean time (from August 8 to September 18), and Durkin, having emerged victorious in the special election was finally seated on September 18.
  6. ^ Fell ill and yielded his powers to the president of the state Senate; died on December 29, 1982.
  7. ^ In summer 1999 a Democratic senator died and was succeeded by a Republican elected in a special election.
