Granite Glok reported: We've got something for you if you're looking for irregularities in your local elections. Columbia, New Hampshire. It's way up north. A tiny little town that, according to the 2020 US Census, had 695 residents. But according to the Secretary of State, Maggie Hassan received 1,106 votes from the same town. Don Bolduc had 193 votes. The State Website reports Columbia, NH, had 735 residents in 2019. Wikipedia cites a decline based on the 2020 census to 695.
