Yes, it is pretty weird.  Some states run their primaries using the 
regular election officials, in other states they are run by parties.  
Maybe  "hybrid" regulations are common. 

It's hard to keep track of, and impossible to generalise.

In the case of NH, even looking at it as a purely private event, it's 
bad when they don't follow their own written rules, or when top state 
officials say one thing and then do another.

I really long for a good-news story about election administration.  Time 
after time there is great work being done by regular people and then you 
discover that there's a number of people behind the scenes completely 
destroying the integrity of the entire process.
