The Results Are In…

posted by on November 3 at 21:26 PM

…And Dixville Notch, the New Hampshire town that’s famous for always being the first town in America to vote, has gone overwhelmingly for Obama, the first time the town has picked a Democrat in 40 years:

Dixville Notch, NH (AHN) - The town of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, with a population of around 75 people and only 21 registered voters, has picked Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to be the next president of the United States. Obama defeated Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) by a margin of 15 votes to 6.

Dixville Notch has a Republican history, voting for President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, while previously voting for both President George H.W. Bush in 1992 and Bob Dole in 1996.

This means nothing, I’m sure, but I’m happy the first bit of news out of election day is positive.
