In a scene that will be played out across the country, four New Hampshire Democrats are casting the state's official Electoral College ballots for President Barack Obama.
New Hampshire has four votes, which will be cast Monday by Arthur Soucy of Manchester, James Demers of Concord, Joanne Dowdell of Portsmouth and Mary Rauh of New Castle. All are longtime activists who've either served as local elected officials, ran for office or were heavily involved in the Obama campaign.
The ceremony, which will be held at 10 a.m. at the Statehouse, brings to a close a long campaign season. New Hampshire played a prominent role in kicking off the nominating process with its first-in-the-nation primary, and remained a key swing state right through the general election.
