The results are in ... and it’s ... a tie.
At least in Dixville Notch, a tiny town in New Hampshire that gets the first say on election day. Here’s CNN.

“Just after midnight in New Hampshire as the tiny town of Dixville Notch made history. Ten total votes cast, five for Barack Obama and five for Mitt Romney. They have never had a tie before.”

Residents of Dixville Notch have voted at midnight every year since 1960. The traditional theory is that whoever wins Dixville, wins the election. But as The Hill reports...  

“Dixville voters have only picked the winner successfully seven out of the past 13 elections ... Still, Dixville has forecasted the last three elections correctly ...”

But how much do 10 voters in a tiny New Hampshire town tell us about the election? A reporter for The Atlantic Wire points out, probably not much. But “...since this is the only actual ‘exit poll’ we’ll be seeing until later this evening, it’s also the only thing worth talking about right now.”

Dixville Notch’s neighbor, Hart’s Location, also votes at midnight. At Hart’s, President Obama got 23 votes, Mitt Romney 9.
