HINSDALE, N.H. (WWLP) – On Tuesday, voters will determine the 45th President of the United States.

Four electoral votes are up for grabs in a New Hampshire, where it’s close every election.

“It probably will be again this time, who knows how it goes, but it’s going to be close I’m sure,” said Keith Therieau of Hinsdale, New Hampshire.

New Hampshire is one of several states considered to be a “swing state” in Tuesday’s election where candidates from both parties have a reasonable chance of winning. There are 11 total swing states, including Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have focused a lot of resources in these states.

“There’s so much coverage here and Donald Trump is such a force and Hillary Clinton is too. There are so many people that are passionate about both of them,” said Mary Bourne of Hinsdale.

“It’s going to be interesting, we will see what happens it’s been a hard fought campaign for both candidates and they have spent a lot of time in New Hampshire,” said Charlie Rosa of Hinsdale. “I urge everyone out there to vote.”

New Hampshire has voted for the democrats in five of the last six elections, including President Obama in 2012. New Hampshire did not participate in early voting.
