DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. (AP) — While most of the East Coast is asleep, residents of two tiny villages in northern New Hampshire will head to the polls at midnight to cast the first Election Day votes in the nation.
Dixville Notch has 10 voters and Hart's Location has 37 (there were 36, but one more registered at the last minute.) The towns have been enjoying their first-vote status since 1948 and it's a matter of pride to get everyone to the polls.
Hart's Location Selectman Mark Dindorf says you could call it a friendly competition to see who gets votes tallied first, although he says Hart's Location is a town and Dixville Notch is a precinct.
President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney are locked in a fierce battle for the swing state's four electoral votes.
