Joe Biden won the first small victory of Election Day – winning by all 5 votes in a small New Hampshire town that has a tradition of counting its votes at midnight.
The final vote tally in Dixville Knot, New Hampshire – one of three cities that postpone their election results after midnight – was pulled on a poster board moments after 12 p.m.
Hillary Clinton won the Dixville Notch vote in the 2016 presidential election. Then, the city, which is close to the Canadian border, had a total of 8 voters.
Two other areas of the state, Heart’s Location and Millsfield, have also historically offered midnight voting.
In Millsfield, which is 12 miles south of Dixville Notch, Trump began on Tuesday, with Biden holding five votes.
This year marked the 60th anniversary of Millsfield’s midnight voting tradition. The event usually attracts a large media presence with ample food, but the incident was brought back this year over coronovirus concerns.
Meanwhile, in place of Hart, the midnight turnout was completely ended due to an epidemic. Instead, voters there can vote from 11 am to 7 pm
