The highlight of election day was a live stream from the Manchester campus of Franklin Pierce University. Alexander Heffner, host of The Open Mind on PBS and student journalists from Souhegan High and Franklin Pierce University gave regular updates on the voting and interviewed a variety of guests including New Hampshire Secretary of State, Bill Gardner and Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard.

Much like the candidates, NHPBS will now move on to tracking the results in other states and hosting a General election mock election in the fall. Students will be able to vote for president, governor, house representatives and U.S. senator. We will provide election resources and conduct candidate surveys. Information can be found on the mock election website.
