CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A national research group says New Hampshire’s official election Web site is the worst in the country.

The election sites of all 50 states and the District of Columbia were rated by the Pew Center for the States, a nonprofit research group in Washington, D.C.

The ratings are divided into five categories and point values are assigned to each category. New Hampshire’s site scored 33 out of 100, making it 51st. Iowa was ranked best, at 77. The average was 58.

The report looked at whether the Web sites could be found easily and used by voters seeking information, including confirming if they are registered, finding out how to register, finding out where to vote and what candidates or issues are on the ballot. It said New Hampshire lists polling places, but does not include a locator for them, does not allow voters to confirm if they are registered and does not show sample ballots.
