Kasich wins for Republicans while Democrats go for the Bern

  • More journalists than voters in Dixville Notch
  • Seen as an indicator of future winners

In the US, results are already in from the first ballot of the New Hampshire presidential primary.

With a population of only 12, there were many more journalists than people present when polls opened at midnight in the tiny New Hampshire community of Dixville Notch.

Voting also took place in the nearby communities of Hart’s Location and Millsfield.

After Iowa last week, the small state of New Hampshire is the second to vote.

Many see the votes as an indicator of who will go on to larger victories in the presidential race.

Dixsville Notch


  • John Kasich 3 votes (the winner)
  • Donald Trump 2


  • Bernie Sanders 4 votes (the winner)
  • Hillary Clinton 0



  • Ted Cruz 9 votes (the winner)
  • Donald Trump 3
  • Chris Christie 1
  • Jeb Bush 1
  • Carly Fiorina 1
  • Marco Rubio 1
  • Rand Paul 1


  • Hillary Clinton 2 votes (the winner)
  • Bernie Sanders 1

Why is Dixsville Notch significant?

The pint-sized poll gets particular attention as it is seen as an indicator of who will go on to be the eventual Democrat and Republican presidential nominees.

President-to-be Barack Obama won here in 2008 while presidential rival John McCain won for the Republicans.

Obama won again in 2012 but the Republican vote was split between Mitt Romney and former Governor of Utah, Jon Huntsman.
