“They might have suggestions for election officials, which might include having supervisors of the checklist appoint assistants to help,” Scanlan said.

Most polls in New Hampshire close at 7 p.m., but some, including sites in Nashua, go until 8 p.m.

Some 45 percent of towns still do hand counts of ballots, though that number is actually smaller than it seems since it captures 20 to 25 percent of the population, Scanlan said.
