Turnout was heavy Tuesday morning in Manchester, N.H.’s Ward 6; the parking lot was packed and a long line of voters stood waiting when the polls opened at 6 a.m., several officials said. It was sunny and cold, with temperatures hovering around freezing, a couple of hours later, and traffic was steady. The 30 or so volunteers holding signs for candidates along the front walk – Republicans lined up neatly on the right, Democrats on the left – were bundled up in parkas and thick gloves. By 9:30 a.m., 1,200 of the ward’s 7,000 or so registered voters had cast ballots.
