What time do the polls close?

Polls in New Hampshire close at 7:30 p.m.


What time do results start rolling in?

Polling stations will begin tallying results not long after voting closes, but Patrick Gannon, the spokesman for the North Carolina State Board of Elections, says he can’t predict when we’ll know the outcome. “Those would be famous last words,” he says.


Almost half of registered voters cast ballots early in North Carolina, with Democratic turnout higher so far.

Forty-five percent of North Carolina’s registered voters took advantage of the 17-day early voting period, which ended Saturday. As of Monday, Democrats led Republicans about 42 percent to 32 percent. More than one-fourth of those who have already voted have no party affiliation.
