MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) - New Hampshire’s governor predicts a record turnout Tuesday in his state’s first-in-the-nation primary, as the Secretary of State's office reports the unusually high number of voters so far has some polling locations running low on ballots.
Governor John Lynch tells CNN that he expects half a million people to vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries.
A wide-open race in both parties and unseasonably mild temperatures could be contributing to the long lines at voting locations across the Granite State.
New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State Dave Scanlan tells CNN that his office has received phone calls that in certain locations, polling places are getting low on ballots - in particular, Democratic ballots - and that additional ballots are being driven out to various polling places across the Granite State.
No polling station has yet run out of ballots, says Scanlan, and his office is comfortable that they are going to be able to get through the day with the number of ballots they have on hand.
The prediction of a record turnout in New Hampshire follows record-breaking turnout in last week’s Iowa Democratic and Republican caucuses.
