An election worker hands out stickers to voters after casting their ballots at Belmont High School on February 9, 2016 in Belmont, New HampshireAfter months of studying and meeting candidates, New Hampshire residents trooped to polls Tuesday in the second key test of the White House race, with Donald Trump chasing victory and Hillary Clinton looking to reel in local hero Bernie Sanders.

At a pretrial hearing in January, Captain Michael Petrusic said prosecutors expected to turn over thousands of classified documents to the defense before the trial, planned for Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Bergdahl’s attorney, Lieutenant Colonel Franklin Rosenblatt, said prosecutors had too much authority over which documents would be provided to the soldier's lawyers, hampering the defense's ability to prepare for his trial.
