Part 2, Article 67 of the New Hampshire Constitution establishes the position of the |
Treasurer of the State of New Hampshire.
In accordance with the Constitution, the Treasurer is elected by a joint session of the
Senate and the House of Representatives (the General Court). This election takes
place on the first Wednesday of December following the biennial election when the
new General Court meets for organizational purposes.
Upon the death, resignation, or removal of the treasurer, the Governor, with the advice
of the council, shall appoint some suitable person as commissioner to take charge
of the money, books and papers in the office, and to perform all the duties of treasurer
until a treasurer is elected and qualified.
In colonial periods the treasurer was appointed by the chief executive and frequently
the same man was secretary of the province and treasurer.
