Incumbent Democrat Senator Maggie Hassan won reelection for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.
Hassan defeated Republican challenger Donald Bolduc 53.6% to 44.4%, according to the Associated Press.
Roughly 57,000 votes separated the two candidates.
But it appears there were possibly some election shenanigans in the New Hampshire race.
Hassan allegedly earned about 1,100 votes in a small town with a population under 700.

How were over 1300 votes cast in a town with a population under 700 at least and under 800 at best?
Someone up there might want to request the same-day registration list. Your town doubled in size overnight.
Local officials are now calling this a “glitch” and they corrected it locally.
