You might not realize it, but some polls in the presidential election have already closed.
The three towns of Dixville Notch, Millsfield, and Hart’s Location in northern New Hampshire have already completed voting and have reported their official results. That’s due to a quirky state law that allows towns with fewer than 100 voters to close the polls after all eligible voters have cast their ballots.
Each town took about a minute total to vote, with polls opening exactly at midnight and then closing a few moments later once all votes had been submitted.
Dixville Notch, a town with a total population of 12 based on the 2010 census, recorded four votes for Hillary Clinton, two for Donald Trump, one for Gary Johnson, and one write-in vote for Mitt Romney.
Millsfield, a town of 23 people, recorded 16 votes for Trump, four for Clinton, and one write-in vote going to Bernie Sanders.
Hart’s Location, the largest of the three towns with 41 people, reported 17 votes for Clinton, 14 for Trump, three for Johnson, two write-ins for Bernie Sanders, and one vote for a ticket with John Kasich and Bernie Sanders for president and vice-president, respectively.
That brings the official tally of the 2016 presidential election (as of 10 a.m. on Election Day) to: Trump with 32 votes, Clinton with 25 votes, Johnson with four votes, and five votes for folks who aren't on the ballot.
Other than these few towns, we won’t hear of any more official results until the first polls in Indiana and Kentucky close at 6 p.m. EST.
