The small town of Dixville Notch in New Hampshire has announced that Democratic nominee Joe Biden has unanimously won in their town.
Donald Trump failed to receive a single vote from a Dixville Notch resident. The town has a total population of 12 and it held its election day at midnight.
Because of its small population, the town holds its voting event at the stroke of midnight and then immediately reveals the election results.
Back in 2016, the town’s election results say 7 votes for Hillary Clinton and four votes for Donald Trump. One individual cast their vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.
The town’s votes are in no way predictive of the final result to come, but it does speak volumes that Trump lost all of the support that he had in the small town.
Dixville Notch’s midnight voting tradition has held for both primary and general elections since 1960. The tradition continues despite the town’s dwindling population and a bit of a panic after the town’s selectman moved away back in February. The town is filled with political junkies so once they calmed down, they were able to quickly fill the vacated position and have the tradition for the town’s 60th year.
The town of Millsfield, New Jersey. announced its results shortly after Dixie Notch, it has a slightly larger population. It has a total of 21 residents.
Trump won the election in Millsfield by a vote of 16-4. Biden received one more vote than Clinton did in 2016 in Millsfield. At that time one voter cast a protest vote for Bernie Sanders.
Hart’s Location usually holds a midnight vote as well, but this year it rescheduled the event to a daytime vote for COVID-19 and social distancing reasons.
Here is what we at Vozwire will be keeping a close eye on today…
11 am – Most of Florida closes, and Georgia closes as well.
12 noon – all of Florida closes. Watch for results in the Panhandle. If Biden takes Florida that could be a big indicator of what is to come.
Florida and Ohio, allow this process to start weeks before election day, so a majority of the votes have already been counted.
Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and other states don’t allow early votes to be processed until polling day.
