By tradition, the unincorporated village of Dixville Notch, N.H., located in Coos County, is one of two locations that get to cast the first votes of the presidential election just after midnight on Election Day. The other location, also in New Hampshire, is Hart's Location.

This year, Dixville Notch residents cast their votes in a tie: five votes each for President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. It was the first time in Dixville Notch's history that a tie was recorded.

In 2008, President Obama carried Dixville Notch, beating Sen. John McCain 15 votes to six.
