Hart’s Location, NH: First Town To Vote In The Nation, Chooses Obama

Well, the first votes have been cast in the Presidential Election and if they are any indicator, Barack Obama is off to a good start.

Since 1948, Hart’s Location and Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, have been the first places to vote in the nation.

In Hart’s Location, the polls opened up at midnight and by 12:05, the official results (right) were in: Barack Obama won the town in a staggering 23-9 defeat over Mitt Romney. Libertarian Gary Johnson received 2 votes.

In the precinct of Dixville Notch, 43 seconds of voting led to a tie between Obama and Romney: 5 to 5. All righty, 44 down, only one hundred million to go!

      I was watching CBS this morning and guess which location they played, and played, and played?

      I’ll give you a hint… CBS claimed a tie!
