On the primary ballot this year: candidates for U.S. Senate, U.S. House, governor, executive council, state senators and representatives, along with county offices. Among the most closely watched races is the gubernatorial contest, with Democrats Andru Volinsky and Dan Feltes vying to take on Republican Governor Chris Sununu. We'll find out who came out ahead and what it might mean for the November general election. And we'll also check in on how the voting process itself went, with the dramatic increase in absentee voting due to the pandemic.  If you're an election worker or voter, we want to hear from you. How did the day go?  How did it differ from prior years?
