Bow and Dunbarton will vote Tuesday in a special election for a state representative in Merrimack County District 23 to succeed Samantha Fox, who resigned Jan. 12.

The race has drawn money and attention from both parties because the district is fairly well split between the parties, with a plurality of undeclared voters. Democrats won all three seats in November.

The candidates are Democrat Muriel Hall, a retired Bow Elementary School teacher, and Republican Christopher Lins, a Bow sales executive.

Hall taught at Bow Elementary for 32 years, which included the integration of Dunbarton students within the Bow district, until her retirement in 2019.

Lins, a 1984 graduate of Concord High School, has coached Bow Youth Lacrosse for boys in 5th and 6th grades.

Ballot voting is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in both towns. Masks are not required in either polling place although Bow is asking people to wear them, and Dunbarton is asking people who are not vaccinated to wear one.

Voting in Bow is at the Community Center, 3 Bow Center Road. In Dunbarton voting is at the Community Center, 20 Rogers Road.
