Organization Day

The New Hampshire House and Senate are organizing themselves today, as required by the State Constitution. The House just completed its roll call of the 400 Members-Elect, and will administer the Oath of Office en masse. 390 Members-Elect answered the call.

Anyone missing the Roll Call will be sworn in before the next session they attend.

The Governor will now be summoned to the House Chamber to give the Oath. The newly-inaugurated Members will then elect their officers, including Speaker of the House, as well as the House Clerk and House Sargent at Arms. The Senate will do the same for their Members and Officers.

Once both chambers are set up, they will meet in Joint Session to choose two additional Constitutional officers, the Secretary of State and State Treasurer.
