Dixville Notch, NH (WIBX) – Did Dixville Notch get it right?  President Barack Obama has been re-elected.  And Dixville Notch predicted a tie.

In a tradition that has stood since 1960, the little town of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire has been one of the first polling places to open on election day.

The unincorporated town in the village of Dixville, Coos County, New Hampshire boasted a population of twelve during the 2010 U.S. Census.  Ten voted after midnight this morning and the result was a tie–five votes for Obama and five for Romney.

Neighboring Hart’s Location joined in the election fun, that town’s on again, off again tradition on again since 2010.  Whether or not the results in Dixville play out for the rest of the nation, most analysts agree that this year’s election will be a close one.  And a long night is anticipated for those who, unlike the residents of Dixville, waited until the last minute to vote.

Alas, the wait was not too long.  The White House was quickly surrounded by supporters shortly after midnight as President Barack Obama is announced the winner of the 2012 Presidential election.
