CONCORD — The New Hampshire presidential primary still hasn't been officially scheduled, but nearly 60 people have signed up to get on the ballot.

The filing period for the 2016 primary ended Friday with 30 Republicans and 28 Democrats signing paperwork and paying the $1,000 filing fee.

All but two of them were men — Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Carly Fioriana were the only female candidates.

For the 2012 election, 44 presidential candidates from 26 states got on New Hampshire's ballot. The all-time high was 1992, when 61 signed up.

The primary is expected to be held Feb. 9, but Secretary of State William Gardner hasn't set the date yet.
