DescriptionThe Executive Council of the State of New Hampshire (commonly known as the
Governor's Council) is the executive body of the U.S. state of New Hampshire.
The Executive Council advises the Governor on all matters and provides a check
on the governor's power. New Hampshire is one of the few states which has an
Executive Council, and is the state whose council has the most power. While the
Governor retains the right to veto legislation passed by the NH General Court,
and commands the New Hampshire National Guard, the Council has veto power
over pardons, contracts with a value greater than $5,000, and nominations. The
Executive Council Chambers have been located in the New Hampshire State
House since the chambers were added to the capitol in 1909.

The Executive Council is made up of 5 councilors elected for two-year terms by
their respective districts. The General Court divides the state into five districts by
population, with each district containing approximately 247,000 citizens.
