On Tuesday, voters in New Hampshire went to the polls to have their voices heard in the state's presidential primary election.

Heading into to the contest, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appeared to be in a strong position to win the race. Recent polls have shown the White House hopeful running ahead of rival candidates competing for the Republican presidential nomination.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich are nevertheless hoping to make a splash in the Granite State. Texas Gov. Rick Perry will not be in New Hampshire on Tuesday night and is already turning his attention to the early primary battleground state of South Carolina.

Last week, Romney came out on top in the 2012 Iowa caucus.
