Joe Biden secured the first Election Day victory while Donald Trump took the second as two tiny
New Hampshire towns with a combined population of 26 announced the first US results just after midnight.
Dixville Notch posted its final tally – with all five votes going to Biden – on a handwritten poster board at
12.03am on Tuesday, as most Americans get some shut-eye before polls open nationwide
The town near the Canadian border has been among the first in the US to reveal election results for the past 60 years, handing Hillary Clinton one of her first wins in 2016.
Meanwhile 12 miles away in Millsfield, ballot boxes also opened at 12.01am, with all votes coming
in just after Dixville Notch. President Donald Trump won that contest, with 16 votes to Biden’s five.
