Former Vice President Joe Biden is projected to win New Hampshire over President Donald Trump, according to NBC News.

New Hampshire has four Electoral College votes. While Trump lost the state by less than half a percentage point in the 2016 race against then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Biden had been favored to win in 2020.

The state is typically considered a battleground, though it has voted Democratic in six of the last seven presidential elections. The state's polls closed at 8 p.m. ET.

Trump had traveled to the Granite State over the summer and returned there in late October.
