The Presidential Results are In: It’s a Tie

Well, the first presidential results are in and… it’s a tie? The town of Dixville, New Hampshire – population about 12 – is famous for being the first place where polls open, shortly after midnight.

And, as CNN reports, the election is currently a tie.

The town in the state’s northeast corner has opened its polls shortly after midnight each election day since 1960 – but today’s tie was the first in its history.

The result was unexpected, said town clerk Dick Erwin. The town has two registered Democrats, three Republicans and five independents.

“Considering the way things are polling around the country, we may have been the first tie of the day,” said town clerk Dick Erwin, noting the national polls showing a virtual dead heat in the race. “Keep your eyes on the news reports, because it’s going to be a wild ride.”

Of course, since 1996 another New Hampshire town has been opening its polls at midnight. In that case, Obama won in a landslide: 23 votes to 9 votes.

Only time will tell if this was a sign of things to come, or just a bunch of people who like to vote in the middle of the night.
