With Election Day now just over a week away, Vice President Joe Biden, Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney, all will visit New Hampshire over the next two days.
Biden will visit Keene State College on Monday, and Romney will hold a 'victory rally' in Milford on Tuesday.

The Biden event is free to the public, but tickets are required. One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, today from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at these Obama For America offices: 76 Grove St., Peterborough; 294 West St., Keene; and at Keene State College's L.P. Young Student Center, 24 Madison St.

Ann Romney will visit Derry and Manchester on Monday. She will be at a 'meet-and-greet' event at the Derry campaign office, 15 W. Broadway, Suite 2, at 11:15 a.m. Then she'll attend a 'rally with the Republican team' at 4 p.m. at Manchester's McIntyre Ski Area Lodge, 50 Chalet Court.
The public can also RSVP to all Romney campaign events on www.mittromney.com/nh.
First lady Michelle Obama's planned Tuesday visit to the University of New Hampshire in Durham was canceled after the university called off classes for Monday and Tuesday because of Hurricane Sandy.
A spokesman for the Romney campaign said all events are on for now, but the campaign is 'monitoring' the weather.
