Hart’s Location: Obama 23 Romney 9 Johnson 2
Speaking of random folks in a sleepy hamlet to whom we pay way too much attention, the other small New Hampshire town that for some godforsaken reason votes at Midnight went decisively for President Obama:
By tradition, the town of Hart’s Location, located in Carroll County, New Hampshire, is one of two locations that get to cast the first votes of the presidential election just after midnight on Election Day. The other location, also in New Hampshire, is Dixville Notch.
This year, the tiny town cast 23 votes for President Barack Obama, giving him the win over Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who earned nine votes. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson received two votes.
Okay, well then I guess this means we can skip right to Inauguration Day, right?
