"By tradition, the unincorporated village of Dixville Notch, N.H., located in Coos County, is one of two locations that get to cast the first votes of the presidential election just after midnight on Election Day," reports the Huffington Post.

The story continues, "This year, Dixville Notch residents cast their votes in a tie: five votes each for President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. It was the first time in Dixville Notch’s history that a tie was recorded."

Separately, the Associated Press reports that the other New Hampshire town that also votes at midnight, ET, had different results, "In Hart’s Location, Obama had won with 23 votes, Romney received 9 and Libertarian Gary Johnson received 2 votes. Thirty-three votes were cast in 5 minutes, 42 seconds."
