I must admit that I love being a resident in the "first of the nation" state. I'll also admit I don't think it makes much sense, but it sure does make rural life exciting! I flew into Manchester airport the day before voting day at 11 pm and the place was hopping. Usually NH cities are ghost towns after 9. Seriously. We're not known for our late night.
I placed my vote. My candidate did not win. They never do.
