The first New Hampshire primary was held in March, 1916. In 1920, it moved to the front of the primary calendar; the state has maintained this first-in-the-nation status for the past 100 years.
Three small towns in New Hampshire cast their votes overnight, just after midnight. If you are viewing this page prior to 7:00 PM ET, when polls close in much of the state, those are the results you will see. Results are expected shortly after 7:00 PM and will automatically update on this page. The final polls close at 8:00 PM.
There has been no shortage of polling for this contest. If it is accurate, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg will finish 1-2 and earn the lion's share of the state's 24 pledged delegates. After that it gets a little murky: Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden should be fairly tightly bunched - in some order - from 3rd through 5th. It remains to be seen if any of them meet the 15% threshold for delegates.
President Trump had a final average of 83.3% in the polls, 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.
