The race to find out who will be the next occupant of the White House continues in New Hampshire where people in the US are voting in the contests to select the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.
On the Republican side, frontrunner Donald Trump is hoping for a better performance than in last week’s Iowa caucuses, won by Senator Ted Cruz.
The main Democratic race is between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.
The tiny town of Dixville Notch cast the first votes at midnight, favouring Bernie Sanders and John Kasich.
Under New Hampshire State law, towns with populations of under 100 can apply to cast their vote as the clock strikes midnight and close the polling station as soon as everyone has voted.
Mr Sanders, a Senator from neighbouring Vermont and a self-proclaimed “democratic socialist”, is hoping for a victory in New Hampshire over former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Mrs Clinton, who is backed by the Democratic establishment, narrowly won in Iowa.
