Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden won the midnight election in Dixville Notch, NH, in a landslide.
Biden won a total of five votes in the small town of New Hampshire, where history stashed their results after midnight. In doing so, he won his first victory on Election Day.
“The last candidate to win a landslide match was Richard Nixon in 1960,” tweeted Fox News media reporter Rob DiRienzo.
CORONAVIRUS CONTINUOUSLY IN 3 FLOORS OF VOTING MIDNIGHT TRADITIONAL HAMPSHIRE TOWNS NEW TINY
Nearby Millsfield, about 12 miles south of Dixville Notch, also voted for the President shortly after midnight’s stroke. President Donald Trump won early on Tuesday, with 16 compared to Biden’s five.
Located in a remote area in northern New Hampshire, about 20 miles south of the Canadian border, the Dixville Notch has been a symbol of midnight election for decades.
Over the years, media began to flood the town on election nights to keep track of the first votes arriving. Elections have traditionally been held in the High-rise Voting Chamber at Balsams Resort, a hotel in the center of town. The presidential candidates from Ronald Reagan to John McCain have certainly made a trip to the voters in Notch.
This year is the traditional 60th anniversary, starting in November 1960.
TRUMP SAID THE MASTER HELP MICHIGAN EASILY AT RALLY FINAL CAMPAIGN
Tom Tillotson, who runs the town at Dixville Notch, said last week that there would normally be a big food show and a lot of media crowded in a small space to track the vote. But that is no longer possible because of the pandemic coronavirus.
“Sixty years – and unfortunately, we can’t celebrate it,” he said.
However, the town doesn’t always predict the final winner of the election, as Hillary Clinton won the Dixville Notch in 2016, even though Trump went on to win the Electoral College.
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg won the primary election there earlier this year and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Won in 2016.

For years, polls were held in a wood-paneled room filled with political memorabilia at Balsams, which closed in 2011. Some of those items have been moved to an old on-site cooking school where Tuesday’s voting took place.
