New Hampshire

An elected convention submitted a constitution to the towns in June; it was declared ratified on October 31 and went into effect in June 1784. It was closely modeled on the 1780 Massachusetts constitution, although the property qualifications for officeholders were lower than in Massachusetts and every male over 21 who paid a poll tax could vote. Executive power was vested in the president of the state, who presided over and voted in the senate, but lacked a veto over legislation.
