A "vote here" sign marks the way to the polling place in Nashua, November 4, 2008.

Voters in New Hampshire are turning out for elections in cities across the state.

In Concord’s Ward 4, at St. Peter’s Parish Hall, Moderator John Williams said turnout was moderate.

“We’ve had a pretty steady but slow stream of people coming in. We’re probably looking at about a 15% turnout for our ward.”

Voters in Concord are electing a mayor, city council and school board.

In Manchester, the high profile race pits incumbent Mayor Ted Gatsas against challenger Patrick Arnold. Voters there will also vote for aldermen, school board members and weigh in on a new charter.

It’s also Election Day for voters in the cities of Portsmouth, Dover, Rochester, Somersworth, Laconia and Keene.
