The First Presidential Election Results Are in and the Race Is Tied in Dixville Notch
The polls are not even closed yet and we already have official results from one tiny New Hampshire village where President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied. Since 1960, the residents of Dixville Notch have cast their ballots just after midnight and the votes have been counted – all 10 of them, with five for the president and five for Romney. As of 2010 the population of Dixville Notch is 12, according to U.S. Census data. The town has three registered Republicans, two Democrats and five independents.
This is the first time there has been a tie in this tiny town. Back in 2008, then candidate Obama received 15 of the 21 votes that were cast while John McCain received only six and that was the first time a Democrat received the majority of vote.
The polls will close in the Tri-State at 6pm and WKDQ will have updates twice per hour on oir and online between 7 and 10pm. This video shows the process in tiny Dixville Notch… very interesting.
