With a fresh coat of snow on the ground, voters from all over the Granite State have been hitting the polls all day Tuesday to vote for their respective party’s presidential candidates. Polls have been open since Tuesday morning, with state law dictating they must be open by 11 AM, but most towns in our area started at 8 AM.
All polls across the state close by 8 PM at the latest, and results can be seen afterwards very easily on Google by typing in “New Hampshire Primary”. Town officials from all across our region today manned the polls, including at Plainfield, Sunapee, Newport, Newbury, and New London.
Residents of all ages turned out to vote today, at least those above 18 of course.
According to poll numbers prior to Tuesday, Bernie Sanders leads the Democratic Party by a comfortable margin and the same can be said for Republican front-runner Donald Trump, who leads second place Marco Rubio by nearly double.
However, as we said Monday, poll numbers are not entirely indicative of who will come out on top so make sure to stay posted online to see which candidates take home New Hampshire.
