Voters will head to the polls Tuesday in more than a dozen New Hampshire communities that opted to postpone their local elections due to last week's nor’easter.

Derry, Londonderry, Litchfield and Newfields are among the communities that chose not to hold their Town Meeting elections last Tuesday.

Voters in those towns and several others will instead cast ballots Tuesday on a number of issues, including local town council races, town budgets, and infrastructure projects.

Last week's storm created confusion over whether towns had the right to postpone their local elections.

A hearing will be held Tuesday on a Senate bill that would ensure results from those elections that were delayed would still count.
