In an isolated area tucked into the White Mountains in northern New Hampshire, sits a tiny little village called Dixville Notch. It’s biggest claim to fame in the first in the nation primary voting that has become a tradition since the 1960’s. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders got an early jump on Hillary Clinton, winning 4 – 0 after the ballots had been cast at midnight, hopefully setting the stage for what many feel is a lock for Sanders. Voters in nearby Hart’s Location and Millsfield also participated today, combining their totals with Dixville Notch gives Sanders a total of 17 votes, with 9 going to Clinton.
