Obama Leads in First Ballots Counted

Dixville Notch and Hart's Location, New Hampshire have followed their tradition of voting just after midnight on Election Day and quickly counting the ballots. Obama won the two towns by 32 votes to just 16 for McCain. According to Wikipedia, Obama is the first Democrat to carry Dixville Notch since Humphrey beat Nixon in the town in 1968. Oh, and Shaheen leads Sununu by 12 votes to 6 in Dixville Notch in the U.S. Senate race--an ominous start for the Republicans in an area they've usually done well.
