The Surprising First Election Day Victories For Biden And Trump
There seem to be two camps of people this election: Those actively avoiding the news; and the ones glued to their screens, unable to look away and almost compulsively checking for any new developments. Well, for that second camp, there's finally something to see. The very first town, Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, has counted the election's earliest votes; five of them to be specific (via New York Post). The winner of all five was candidate Joe Biden, giving him the first official win of election day.
Before you get too excited, keep in mind that this township hasn't been historically indicative of the election overall, or even of the state's results. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the Dixville Notch vote, and then Donald Trump went on to win the Electoral College (via CNN). However, despite all the headlines focusing on this first Biden win, Dixville Notch isn't the only New Hampshire township to have announced early election results thanks to midnight voting.
