LIVE: Salem Election Results

We'll bring you the results as soon as they're available tonight.

UPDATE, 1:45 a.m.: Full Salem results are available below.

UPDATE, 11:55 p.m.: All four of Salem's voting districts have finally reported to Town Hall, so we expect results to start coming in shortly. 

For now, we have Atkinson and Plaistow results for Senate District 22. Incumbent Chuck Morse has a big lead so far.

ORIGINAL STORY: Salem voters will be heading to the polls today from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to decide several important elections, from President of the United States down to Rockingham County offices and everything in between.

Below we've set up our charts to fill in once we get the results, which given the expected turnout volume may not be for several hours after the polls close.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest, but we will update the charts once we receive the results from Town Clerk Susan Wall. Bookmark this page to have it ready to look up later tonight.

Additionally, we are anticipating receiving results from the towns of Pelham, Plaistow and Atkinson for the Senate District 22, and will update those results as they come in.

UPDATE, 4:30 p.m.: Town Moderator Chris Goodnow gave a rough estimate that 10,000 people had already voted in Salem today as part of a huge turnout for the general election.

Long lines have been the story of the day as voters have waited more than an hour to cast ballots in particular at Fisk Elementary School and the Ingram Senior Center.

"The people in lines have been showing great patience," said Goodnow.

He believes the town should have enough ballots to get through the rest of the evening. Goodnow said the state Secretary of State's office gave the town 18,000 ballots for the day.

The polls are slated to close at 7 p.m., but Goodnow said that is a situation he plans to monitor closely.

Patch also caught up with Republican gubernatorial candidate Ovide Lamontagne at the polls in Salem this afternoon.

UPDATE, 2:15 p.m.: Check out our mid-day election report. Election officials are Salem are anticipating a 70 percent turnout. Add your own photos from the day if you have them.

@Riley Reid Thank you for your help in keeping all 9 Representatives Republican. Keep up the good work.

@50+ , I can assure you the only one's I voted for in that party were Sen Morse and Sheriff Downing. You take some time and look at the voting records on some of our long time Republican Reps and tell me what they have done for Salem. http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/default.htm

Top 3 Democrats Versus: Murray 4,810 Desmet 4,753 Murphy 4,134 Total 13,697 Sweeney 6,287 M Garcia 5,877 B Garcia 5,760 Total 17,924 4,277 votes for these 3 Republicans over top Democrats I am sure thousands of voters know the positions and voting records. Is it young versus old? Sure, but more than just that.

Nobody ever listens to Salem's Town Cranks.
