Dixville Notch has spoken: It's Obama in a landslide

DIXVILLE NOTCH, New Hampshire (CNN) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama emerged victorious in the first election returns of the 2008 presidential race, winning 15 of 21 votes cast in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.


Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, is the first in the nation to vote in the primaries and Election Day.

People in the isolated village in New Hampshire's northeast corner voted just after midnight Tuesday.

It was the first time since 1968 that the village leaned Democratic in an election.

Obama's rival, Republican John McCain, won 6 votes.

A full 100 percent of registered voters in the village cast ballots. And the votes didn't take long to tally.

The town, home to around 75 residents, has opened its polls shortly after midnight each election day since 1960, drawing national media attention for being the first place in the country to make its presidential preferences known.

However, since 1996, another small New Hampshire town -- Hart's Location -- reinstated its practice from the 1940s and also began opening its polls at midnight.

The result in Dixville Notch is hardly a reliable bellwether for the eventual winner of the White House or even the result statewide.

Though New Hampshire is a perennial swing state, Dixville Notch -- until now -- had consistently leaned Republican. The last Democrat it picked was Hubert Humphrey over Richard Nixon in 1968.

President Bush won the town in a landslide in the last two elections: He captured 73 percent of the vote in 2004 (19 residents picked Bush while six preferred Sen. John Kerry), and secured 80 percent of the vote in 2000 (21 votes for Bush, five votes for Al Gore.)

But villagers expected the results to be close this year given Democrats now outnumber Republicans there.

The town picked both John McCain and Barack Obama for the New Hampshire Democratic and Republican primaries in January. McCain ultimately won the state of New Hampshire, while Sen. Hillary Clinton upset Obama there.

A bunch or racist rednecks is all they are. Which is why I've never returned home to live or raise my son in that enviorment.

Maybe this will help them not judge a person based on the color of their skin but, on the content of their charector.

Obama wins in 2 N.H. villages, Ron Paul gets write-in votes

Joseph Abbott
Waco Tribune
Tuesday, Nov 4, 2008

Election Day 2008’s first returns are in, and Sen. Barack Obama already leads Sen. John McCain 64 percent to 32 percent.

Of course, it sounds much less impressive when you realize that means he won by 16 votes.

The New Hampshire villages of Dixville Notch and Hart’s Location — by tradition, the first to vote in the nation — have already opened and, having reached 100 percent turnout within minutes of the midnight EST opening, closed their polling places. The results: Obama won Dixville Notch 15 votes to 6 for McCain, and Hart’s Location 17 votes to 10 for McCain and two (write-in) for Rep. Ron Paul.

Obama is the first Democrat to win Dixville Notch since Hubert Humphrey did it in 1968
