There has been no shortage of Democratic polling in advance of Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. The results have been fairly consistent in recent days, with Sanders and Buttigieg running 1-2. Amy Klobuchar has seen gains, while Joe Biden has been fading. If the polls are accurate, Biden, Klobuchar and Warren should finish 3rd to 5th in some order; it remains to be seen if any (or all) of them are able to meet the 15% threshold for delegates.
For the Republicans, Donald Trump is averaging 83.3%, with former Gov. Bill Weld of neighboring Massachusetts at 9.5%. 22 delegates will be allocated proportionately to candidates getting 10% or higher. The suspense, if any, is whether Weld will cross that 10% threshold.
Three small towns in New Hampshire will cast the first votes at midnight. The most famous of those is Dixville Notch. Those first votes should appear in the tables below once they are counted. The rest of the state votes during the day Tuesday. Many polling places close at 7:00 PM, with the remainder closing at 8:00 PM. The first results are expected during the 7:00 PM hour.
