New Hampshire primaries underway

New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary will be held today (February 11th), and although both parties are holding a primary, there's little doubt President Trump will win his overwhelmingly, so the only suspense is on the Democratic side, where it's expected the field may sort out some after the botched reporting of the Iowa caucus results last week. Although voting for most people starts at 6 a.m., there is a tradition of the tiny community of Dixville Notch voting just after midnight, as did two slightly larger communities, and those votes are in.

  • In Dixville Notch votes, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg,who isn't on the ballot in the state, got two write-in votes on the Democratic side,Senator Bernie Sanders got one vote and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg got one, and the lone Republican vote was a write-in for Bloomberg, who's running for the Democratic nomination.
  • In Hart's Location,Senator Amy Klobuchar got six votes,Senator Elizabeth Warren got four votes, Sanders got three,Andrew Yang got three, and former Vice President Joe Biden,Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer each got one. Trump got all the Republican votes.
  • In Millsfield, Klobuchar got two votes, and Biden, Buttigieg, and Sanders each got one.
