New Hampshire Voters Will Vote on Sportsbetting Locations

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Next week voters in New Hampshire will take to the polls to determine whether or not they should allow sportsbetting retail locations, expanding the number of sites where they can place wagers.

There have been nine cities that have been proposed to have retail locations: Berlin, Claremont, Concord, Dover, Laconia, Manchester, Nashua, Rochester and Somersworth. The state already has sportsbetting at casinos, and the extended options would serve to make wagering on sports easier, boosting tax revenue in the process.

Regulators already have rules in place, but state law requires the expansion to be voted on.

Commenting on the upcoming vote New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director Charlie McIntyre said, "We are pleased to see this response from cities across the state interested in putting this sports betting question before voters. We look forward to continuing to be a resource for community leaders as we launch a successful and responsible sports betting system in New Hampshire."
