Voters in five cities approved allowing sports betting locations within their borders and four communities rejected doing so Tuesday.
Manchester and Somersworth approved the ballot question as did voters in Berlin, Claremont and Laconia. The proposition failed in Concord, Nashua, Dover and Rochester.
The vote to approve in Laconia was just 51 percent, but sports betting received overwhelming support in both Berlin and Claremont, economically-challenged cities where residents may be more predisposed to backing potentially lucrative new businesses.
