First Ballots Hotel

FILE – In this Tuesday Nov. 4, 2008 file photo Dixville Notch residents wait for the stroke of midnight to be the first voters for the nation’s presidential election in Dixville Notch, N.H. For the first time since 1960, the stately resort that’s the site of New Hampshire’s first-in-the nation presidential voting will be closed for the Nov. 6 election. The tradition of midnight voting in the tiny community of Dixville will continue, however. (AP Photo/Cheryl Senter, File)
