MANCHESTER, NH – More wintry weather is on the horizon, according to the Weather Underground, with up to five inches falling here in Manchester by Tuesday morning.
That said, a little pre-Primary snow shouldn’t be enough to keep anyone away from what Secretary of State Bill Gardner expects to be a turn-out of historic proportions. On February 5 Gardner announced his turnout prediction for the 2016 Presidential Primary Election as follows:
Republican Ballots Cast: 282,000; Democratic Ballots Cast: 268,000. The number of registered voters as of Feb. 5: 231,376 Democrats; 262,111 Republicans; 389,472 Undeclared; Total 882,959.
