From 2004: "Nader-requested recount in N.H. moving slowly"
CONCORD, N.H. A recount Ralph Nader requested for some New Hampshire towns went slower than expected Thursday and won't resume until next week, state election officials said.

"It's impossible," said Secretary of State Bill Gardner, declining to predict when the recount would end.

Assistant Attorney General Bud Fitch said recounts in Nader's targeted precincts would not resume until at least Wednesday, virtually ensuring they won't end until after Thanksgiving.

...

Election officials hoped to finish recounts in five of Nader's 11 precincts Thursday, Gardner said. Ballot counters only finished two by 4 p.m., and had only partial returns in two others by nearly 8 p.m., when work ended for the night.

And that was for 11 of 126 precincts. Betcha we won't get results until WELL after Super Tuesday.
