A TIE in Dixville Notch! Obama Support Down 66% From 2008

By Gary P Jackson

A little something from Mary Katharine Ham:

First in the nation Dixville Notch, N.H. casts five votes for Obama and five votes for Romney at midnight on Election Day. It’s the first time the tiny town has ever ended in a tie for the presidential race. Its voters went for Republican candidates for governor (Ovide LaMontagne) and Congress (Rep. Charlie Bass).

For what it’s worth (and it’s all the data we have so far, so it’s worth EVERYTHING), turnout was way down from 21 in 2008, at which point there were 15 votes for Obama and six for McCain.

A couple of tweets about it all:
