Primary Day Arrives In New Hampshire09:43


They were counting ballots early this morning in Dixville Notch, where voting in the New Hampshire primary began at midnight.

In Dixville Notch, nine total votes were cast. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney tied there, with two votes a piece. Texas Tep. Ron Paul and former Speaker Newt Gingrich each won a single vote, while the incumbent, President Obama, won three votes.

Elsewhere across the Granite State, the polls are open until later this evening. Most of the candidates are out of sight now, but that will change when election figures start rolling in.

For the latest on primary day, we check in with NPR's Washington Editor Ron Elving.
