DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. (AP) -- Barack Obama came up a big winner in the presidential race in two small northern New Hampshire towns where the tradition of having the first Election Day ballots tallied lives on.
Barack Obama defeated John McCain by a count of 15 to 6 in Dixville Notch. The town of Hart's Location reported 17 votes for Obama, 10 for McCain and two for write-in Ron Paul. Independent Ralph Nader was on both towns' ballots but got no votes.
