New Hampshire Presidential Primary Is January 23
Secretary of State David Scanlan announced January 23 as the date of its presidential primary, eight days after the Iowa caucuses and defying the Democratic National Committee’s plans to give South Carolina the party’s first primary contest.
New Hampshire has held its first in the nation primary status for more than a century.
In 1975, the state enacted a law that required the primary to take place at least seven or more days before any other state.
Biden’s name will be missing from the New Hampshire presidential primary ballot this year, and they face a potential loss of delegates to the Democratic convention, for not following the party’s new order.
