6:45 Manchester

Our staff attorney Laura RĂ³tolo and legislative specialist Gavi Wolfe are in New Hampshire today working as poll monitors. They'll be providing live updates as time permits!

Laura sent this report early this morning:

Gavi and I arrived at our first assigned polling location to act as monitors with Election Protection - a non-partisan coalition of groups that the ACLU is a part of. We were quickly informed that 250 people had already voted! This is compared to the total 525 people who voted here in the primary. The atmosphere is lively and people seem excited to cast their ballots. Each party has its challengers sitting right behind the poll workers but we haven't seen any challenges yet.
