New Hampshire voted for the Republican nominee, incumbent President Herbert Hoover of California, over the Democratic nominee, Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York. Hoover's running mate was incumbent Vice President Charles Curtis of Kansas, while Roosevelt ran with incumbent Speaker of the House John Nance Garner of Texas.

Hoover won New Hampshire by a narrow margin of 1.43 percent and with 50.42% of the popular vote, it was his fifth strongest state in the nation after Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania and Delaware.[1]

New Hampshire was one of only six states, four of them in New England, which voted to re-elect the embattled Republican incumbent Hoover, who was widely unpopular over his failure to adequately address the Great Depression.
