First Election Results: Dixville Notch, NH


by Sharon Rondeau

Two northern New Hampshire towns have held the first presidential election votes in the nation since 1948

(Nov. 6, 2012) — The first results of the 2012 presidential election are in.

While by no means indicative of the final results, two small towns in northern New Hampshire which have enjoyed “first-vote status” have declared Obama the winner in one and a tie in the other.

The town with the tie, Dixville Notch, is located in Coos County, where Rep. Larry Rappaport is the state representative.  Hart’s Location in Carroll County produced the Obama win today.

There were 11 fewer people casting votes in Dixville Notch this year than in 2012.  The election process consumed 43 seconds in the Dixville Notch precinct, where ten people voted.

    I think and hope that all the people I have seen today at the polls are there to cast their votes for Romney. In all the years I have never seen such a turnout.

    Dear Editor,
    Since the Revolutionary War, today, of all days, should be the real, the one and only, National Day of Prayer. We can’t help the lost, the stupid, the bigots, the racists, the selfish, the disenfranchised, the “they’ll never get it even when it’s handed to them on a silver platter”, the blind, the “mentally challenged”, the real “left behinds”, the uneducated, the unread, the unsophisticated, the dolts, the morons, the imbeciles, the unlearned, the easily swayed, the “slogan followers”, those who follow the Pied Piper to their own destruction, gladly walking off the cliff or to the showers where they can be gassed and die with a smile upon their faces knowing they made the ultimate sacrifice “for the greater good”, when in fact all they ended-up doing is enslaving the next generation and generations to come for the following millenniums: Obots, deserving no respect and therefore no pity, human trash, garbage, squandering hard won Freedoms and Civil Rights, trading in Lady Liberty for a terminally diseased street walker who’ll say and do anything to make you believe you can get something for nothing, that the price for acquiescence is honor and integrity, and the soul, given freely to a warped idea of “good”, when the end result is on color film, with sound, of beheadings of those who refuse to submit, who are called “Sovereigns”, as if a person’s word is as worthless as an “Entitlement”, a “pay-off” for the belief that a person’s worth lies in his character rather than his endless greed, as if the world owed anybody anything at anytime: a revolting concept, based on envy, revenge, imagined “slights” against a blank slate, only knowing what’s been flashed before them on the television screen, the government as A Flasher, revealing the Truth, the Gates of Hell, to Atheists, who’ve never been weaned from government handouts, from welfare, from “government’s money” and not to product of their fellow citizen’s sweat and tears.
    Pray with me for our country that the Constitution shall remain the Law of the Land, that the belief of a Work Ethic over-rides that of an “Entitlement”.
