An American Tradition:Dixville Notch votes at midnight. Results announced shortly thereafter

An endearing American tradition will take place again in the tiny Hamlet of Dixville Notch New Hampshire at midnight. The Presidential election polls will open at midnight and the votes will be counted shortly thereafter, since only 12 people live in the northern New Hampshire hamlet located 20 miles from the Canadian border.In the primaries Sanders got four votes, Kasich got 3 votes Trump received 2 votes. So it would seem likely that Clinton will receive more votes than Trump this time. We shall know in the next hour who takes the early lead in the American election ! According to local officials there are one registered Democrat, three registered Republicans and three registered Independents in Dixville Notch this election.We shall see if the early signal indicates Hillary or Trump or one of the two Independents.Two other small towns Hart’s Location and Millsfield will join with Dixville Notch in opening their polling stations at midnight.

The Results Hillary Clinton 4 votes
Donald Trump 2
Gary Johnson 1
Mitt Romney 1

    Nerve racking this election. Saunders will surely question if by stepping aside he did not compromise the outcome.
