First votes from NH: Dixville Notch and Hart's Location

Political novelties Dixville Notch and Hart's Location, two tiny hamlets in New Hampshire, have cast their votes in the GOP primary. The communities are allowed by law to open voting right after midnight, and close when all registered voters complete voting (usually within minutes).

The GOP primary results from the two "first in the nation" locations:

  • Mitt Romney: 7
  • Ron Paul: 5
  • Jon Huntsman: 4
  • Newt Gingrich: 2
  • Rick Perry: 1

Barack Obama received ten votes in the Democratic primary.
