Trump takes New Hampshire lead 32-25.
Hiilary took Dixville 4-2 Johnson 1
We will see who is our next POTUS.


s the world waits with bated breath for the results of Tuesday's contentious presidential election, its eyes turned briefly to three sleepy hamlets in rural New Hampshire, as their residents — fewer than 100 total — became the first in the nation to cast their ballots.

In Dixville Notch, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump 4-2. Libertarian Gary Johnson received one vote, and the 2012 Republican candidate, Mitt Romney received a surprise write-in ballot. In the slightly larger burg of Hart's Location, Clinton won with 17 votes to Trump's 14. Johnson got three votes, while write-ins Bernie Sanders and John Kasich each got one. And in Millsfield, Trump won decisively, 16-4, with one write-in for Bernie Sanders.

So, in the three New Hampshire towns with midnight voting, Trump came out ahead 32-25.

According to New Hampshire law, communities with under 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots.

The best known of these three towns, Dixville Notch, has been voting at midnight every election since 1960. Neil Tillotson, the former owner of the Balsams Grant Resort Hotel, which closed in 2011, started midnight voting in Dixville in 1960 to stir up publicity for the resort. Almost all of the Dixville voters are employees of the resort .

This could be Dixville's last year in the election spotlight, however. Les Otten, a New England businessman, bought the Balsams and plans to redevelop it into a massive ski resort. That could bring the population in Dixville over 100 people, thereby ending its midnight votin

If Trump were to win, would his supporters still claim that the election process is rigged?

I, too, believe the elections are "rigged," although I see it as more of an (s)election process than anything else and these people are carefully handpicked to be the poster boy (and woman) who tell the American people what they want to hear.

NH only has a total of 4 electoral votes. Roughly 100 people in NH do not determine how three of them vote.

House and Senate races are way more important. She is not taking the House for sure. Senate is close but right now GOP has it. Tea leaves are saying 4 years of gridlock. I can live with that scenario.

He can win and it still be rigged. The rigging has to be enough to outpace his electoral college count.
