Sanders, Kasich Win in Dixville Notch

Results are in for the first of the nation's first primary.

As the nation waits for the results of the "first in the nation primary," the votes have already been cast and tallied in New Hampshire's tiny town of Dixville Notch.

Bernie Sanders won all four of the Democrat votes, while John Kasich edged out Donald Trump 3-2 on the GOP side.

Under New Hampshire state law, communities with fewer than 100 voters can get permission to open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots. While that happened in three locations, Dixville traditionally gets most of the spotlight due to its media-friendly setup at the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel.

Located about 20 miles from the Canadian border, Dixville exists as a town only for voting purposes. Almost all of its nine voters are employees of the hotel, which closed in 2011 but is currently undergoing a major overhaul under new owners.

The tradition of voting at midnight was started in 1960 by former hotel owner Neil Tillotson.

Back in 2012, there was a tie between Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman who each got two votes. President Obama won all three Democrat votes.
