Dixville Notch Carries On Grand Voting Tradition At Midnight
There is something so American, and so politically nostalgic about the votes that were cast at midnight in the snowy town of Dixville Notch. Every four years I await the results as the voting day starts. I relish in this tradition.
The very first paragraph of Theodore White’s Making Of The President 1960 mentions this act. They had begun to vote in the villages of New Hampshire at midnight.
Tonight the voters of this small town with their nine citizens made the following statement.
Residents picked Bernie Sanders as the winner on the Democratic side, while John Kasich was the pick on the Republican side. Sanders had 4 votes, while Hillary Clinton got none.
Kasich received 3 votes, while Donald Trump got 2. None of the other candidates earned any votes.
