Citizens Count

Citizens Count serves New Hampshire citizens by: providing objective information about issues and candidates; promoting the civil exchange of opinions in a variety of forums, online and in person: and connecting citizens with their elected officials.   We support their efforts to build a high school curriculum on Citizenship to be used throughout New Hampshire.

Anna Brown, Director of Research and Analysis

Anna Brown is Director of Research & Analysis for Citizens Count and has been with the organization since 2011. She is responsible for tracking, analyzing, and summarizing the roughly 2,000 bills and 1,000 candidates that move through New Hampshire every two years. She gathers legislators’ voting records as well as a wide variety of hard-to-find metrics on each elected official’s work in office. She then crunches these numbers in order to pen our exclusive reports about partisanship in the state Legislature, gender disparities in New Hampshire politics, and other legislative trends. Anna has her hand on the pulse of the New Hampshire General Court in a way that few others do, which makes her a valuable resource on our team. She is a familiar voice on New Hampshire’s radio waves, serving as a go-to policy expert for NHPR and other media outlets. She received her master’s degree in justice studies from the University of New Hampshire.
