Polls in the tiny New Hampshire towns of Dixville, Hart’s Location and Millsfield opened just after midnight on Tuesday and closed as soon as everyone had voted. These die-hard voters are proud to have the first word on the big vote.
While Mrs Clinton won half the Dixville votes, Libertarian Gary Johnson took one and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney got a write-in vote.
Under New Hampshire state law, communities with fewer than 100 voters can get permission to open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots.
Dixville Notch has a population of 12, eight of whom were eligible to vote.
