CONCORD - Polls are opening across the state and a record turnout for a midterm election in New Hampshire is predicted with state races and the balance of power in Washington at stake.
Three Democrats are trying to hold onto their seats in Washington on Tuesday. U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat seeking a second term, faces Republican Scott Brown - who moved to New Hampshire last year after losing his U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts.
In the 1st District, Democratic U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is facing a challenge from Republican Frank Guinta. In the 2nd District, Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster is seeking a second term against GOP state Rep. Marilinda Garcia.
Polling places open between 6 and 11 a.m. depending on location. They close between 7 and 8 p.m.
