You can't get pulled over in North Dakota for not wearing a seat belt either.

The difference is that in North Dakota, failure to wear a seat belt is a punishable *secondary* offense, meaning that you can get punished for seat belt violation if you were pulled over for a primary offense, like speeding.

Agreed. A pretty big deal!

I'm surprised the mountain questions were the lowest scoring. Took my family out there a couple summers ago, saw the resort at Bretton Woods and went up the mountain. It was really windy, but a lovely time. I'd definitely go back.

I still can't get past putting Josiah Bartlett as the president from NH. He is why I know about Manchester and Leaf Peeping.

When I saw the question about New Hampshire having the shortest something of all the states at 23 miles, I immediately thought: international border. Which I think is correct, although it is two words.

I don't think so... it looks like Idaho's is twice as long as NH's (using the Google Earth ruler), about 46 miles vs 23 or so.

Pardon me while I pick...

New Hampshire's seacoast is 18 1/2 miles long.

And we never called them leaf peepers when I lived there. They were just tourists.

Election should be accepted for Primary. Primary elections and general elections. Primary elections come first, therefore election is still correct.
