Voting starts earlier in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire than any where else in the country - just after midnight.  It's a tradition that began back in 1968 and has continued ever since.  Of course every four years, when Americans vote for their Presidential Candidate, results from Dixville Notch come in first.  As it turns out, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, each received five votes in that town.  Today's tie was the first in Dixville Notch's history.  We're not sure what happened to that town's two other residents who haven't voted yet.  They probably decided to sleep in.

You might wondering if any other town has decided to jump on the bandwagon of early morning voting since Dixville Notch adopted it.  Since 1996, another small New Hampshire town - Hart's Location - reinstated its practice from the 1940s and also began opening its polls at midnight. The result there? Obama 23; Romney 9

And just so that you are aware, the results from Dixville Notch are not usually used to determine how the rest of the state of New Hampshire or even that of the nation will vote during the day.
