“First In The Nation” New Hampshire Presidential Primary Results

As the circus descends on the Granite State, voters will have the chance to make or break prospective campaigns in what is the first presidential primary of the season. New Hampshire, a mixed primary where independent voters can vote alongside registered party members, is a wildcard state, and one where the establishment takes a backseat to the underdog.

Trump, reeling from his second place finish a week ago, is still expected to dominate the New Hampshire primary on the Republican side, although not as strongly as originally anticipated. Behind him is an entirely different story however, with a statistical four-way tie between Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

On the Democratic side, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is posed to defeat Hillary Clinton with a confident margin. While his lead has dwindled following a razor thin loss to Clinton, New Hampshire’s independent attitude and natural reception to Sanders’ message will unquestionably carry him through the evening.

However, politicos don’t need to wait until this evening to get a taste of the New Hampshire primaries. Under New Hampshire law, any community with under 100 residents is eligible to open its polls at midnight and close them when all possible votes have been cast- as early as a whole six hours before the rest of the state.

Dixville Notch and Hart’s Location, two townships barely large enough to fill a classroom, have benefited from this law for decades, being quixotic places of interest for many presidential campaigns. Dixville Notch, touting it’s status “First in the Nation” is the more famous of the two, but Hart’s Location has also been participating in the abridged voting process since 1948. This year, these two communities will be joined by a third, Millsfield, as well.
