Derry, New Hampshire (CNN) - New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary is more than a year away, but Granite State Republican activists will be polled Saturday on which candidate they would like to see become their party's nominee in 2012.
The straw poll organizers - WMUR-TV and ABC News – will survey the 493 members of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee at the group's annual meeting in Derry, though not every committee member is expected to attend. Results are expected sometime in the afternoon.
Reflecting the wide-open nature of the early Republican field, nearly every candidate that has made noise about running for president will be featured on the ballot, including Donald Trump.
The ballot also lists New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has dismissed any White House ambitions but remains something of a folk hero to conservative activists nonetheless.
Activists will even be able to check a box for a fellow Granite Stater: former New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg.
The names on the straw poll ballot will be listed in alphabetical order.
They are: Michele Bachmann, Haley Barbour, Chris Christie, Herman Cain, Mitch Daniels, Jim DeMint, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Judd Gregg, Mike Huckabee, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, John Thune and Donald Trump.
There is also a space marked "Other" for voters to write-in another preference.
The vote will reflect the sentiment of only the most hard-core Republican activists in the state, who are gathering in Derry to elect a new state party chairman.
The New Hampshire primary, tentatively scheduled for February 14, 2012, will be open to Republicans as well as independent voters.
