For the biggest elected body around, the September New Hampshire party primaries are relatively small.

There will be contested races in only about one-quarter of the state House of Representatives seats in Greater Nashua communities in the Sept. 9 election.

That’s a total of 11 contested party primaries for state representatives involving 54 people – which sounds like a lot until you remember that hundreds of names appear on the region’s ballots in September because the New Hampshire Legislature is the third-largest elected body in the English-speaking world.

In case you’re wondering, there will be state representative primary races for Republicans in Nashua’s Ward 5 (Hillsborough District 32), Ward 7 (District 34) and Ward 9 (District 36), as well as in Amherst, Hudson,
Litchfield, Merrimack and Pelham.

Democrats have primaries only in Nashua Ward 7 and Milford.

As it has done for many years, The Telegraph will be running short biographies and questionnaires from candidates.

Races farther up the ballot, with far fewer candidates, will be getting different coverage.

The short questionnaire will be sent out to state representative candidates who request them – only those in contested party primaries in Greater Nashua, please.

If you are one of those candidates and would like to participate, email dbrooks@nashuatelegraph.com, with “Candidate questionnaire” in the subject line.
