Well, the early results are in: Obama, 15; McCain 6. Dixville Notch, New Hampshire!

Is there a history that makes this in any way significant?

Mostly just amusing. Of course, Bush swept it in 2004. Hart, N.H. is next. Haven't got results from there yet, nor the Senate results. ;\)

When the Redskins have won the week before, the party that was in power stayed in power. When the Redskins lose, the other party has taken control of the White House. It is a trend that has worked seventeen of the last eighteen times. That puts a lot of pressure on the Redskins.

Just praying that this won't be a repeat of elections in 1948, 2000 or 2004!

It was the first time since 1968 that the village leaned Democratic in an election.

Obama's rival, Republican John McCain, won 6 votes.

A full 100 percent of registered voters in the village cast ballots. And the votes didn't take long to tally.

The town, home to around 75 residents, has opened its polls shortly after midnight each Election Day since 1960, drawing national media attention for being the first place in the country to make its presidential preferences known.

However, since 1996, another small New Hampshire town -- Hart's Location -- reinstated its practice from the 1940s and also began opening its polls at midnight.

The result in Dixville Notch is hardly a reliable bellwether for the eventual winner of the White House -- or even the result statewide.

While New Hampshire is a perennial swing state, with 4 Electoral College votes at stake, Dixville Notch consistently leans Republican. The last Democrat it picked was Hubert Humphrey over Richard Nixon in 1968.

Dixville Notch hasn't gone Republican in 40 years? I dunno, might be more of a bellwether there than we know.
