Tuesday 12 September 2006 polls close 7:00p EDT (2300 UTC) / 8:00p EDT (0000 UTC). NEW HAMPSHIRE permits its 13 cities to keep their polls open until 8 PM EDT by local option- however, as there ARE only 13 cities among New Hampshire's 234 County subdivisions [the 221 "non-cities", of course, being the proverbial New England Town(ship)], the fact is that the vast majority of NH's polls have closed by 7 PM EDT and the networks have no problem considering this hour as the earliest hour of potential projection.

New Hampshire Supreme Court clarifies its ballot order Decision

On 17 August 2006 the New Hampshire Supreme Court unanimously ruled unconstitutional a 1979 state law that requires the candidates of the party that received the most total votes in the previous election to be listed first on the ballot for the next election.

On 25 August 2006 the New Hampshire Supreme Court decided that the ruling would affect the 7 November election and not the 12 September Primary.
