5. Lyndeborough
I know her--Roper is a lifelong resident of Lyndeborough. Her father was fire chief for years, her husband was a selectman who reformed town government to make it more transparent, and she's on the board of checklist supervisors among other boards. She's always been very community oriented and is actually against computer voting--she has always come out in favor of hand counting before this. But from what I understand, she didn't like some of Tobi's behind-the-scenes antics and doesn't trust her motives. Technically she's right that the Lyndeborough vote doesn't mean anything--state law supersedes local law in New Hampshire. But the vote was symbolic, which is why it passed pretty resoundingly.
