Its an old tradition dating back to the early 1950s in the case of Dixville Notch and its not scientific but its a fun way to begin the reportage of the key New Hampshire primary. In Dixville there will be exactly ten voters and they will finish the job of voting and counting the vote shortly after midnight. In the other two villages the populations are equally small Millsfield has 23 people according to 2010 census data and Hart’s Location has 41 people. So the sample is very small, (New Hampshire has a population of 1.327 million) and absolutely unscientific. Nevertheless here are the results from Dixville Notch:
Bernie Sanders 4
Donald Trump 2
John Kasich 3
In Millsfield Cruz has received 9 votes Trump 3 Clinton 2 and Sanders 1 Six other votes were distributed one vote each among 6 of the 8 remaining candidates.
