New Hampshire voters take part in primary election
New Hampshire voters will make their choice for president in the first-in-the-nation primary contest that polls suggest could deliver victory to a pair of outsider candidates, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders. Polls opened across most of the Granite state at 8 a.m. ET, though a trickle of voters made it to the polls in the traditional curtain raiser of Dixville Notch not far from the Canadian border just after midnight. In that snow-bound hamlet, Ohio Gov. John Kasich bested Trump 3-2 among Republicans, while Sanders claimed all four votes among Democrats.
