We’ll be following first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary as Granite Staters vote for the Democratic presidential nominee Tuesday. Coming out of the disastrous Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire will offer a solid glimpse of where the candidates stand and how they’ll maneuver their campaigns in Nevada, South Carolina and beyond.

What To Expect

  • Voting in most communities ends around 7 or 8 p.m. ET, with results expected shortly after that.
  • Unlike Iowa's caucus system, New Hampshirites vote in a presidential primary: One person, one vote — and the ballot is secret.
  • However, rules apply when it comes to apportioning the delegates that will cast votes at the Democratic National Convention in July.
  • Delegates are divided between candidates who earn at least 15% of the popular vote.
  • New Hampshire sends 24 pledged delegates and nine unpledged or superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention: The former vote in the first round at the DNC and the latter, who are not assigned to a candidate according to vote tallies, can participate in the second round at the DNC if no single candidate wins the nomination the first time around.
  • Of the 24 pledged delegates, eight each are awarded based on the state-wide popular vote, the vote in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District, and the vote in New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District.
