Check back for updates throughout the day ahead of the New Hampshire primary.

WASHINGTON – The first votes in the first-in-the-nation primary were cast just after midnight in three small New Hampshire towns on Tuesday.

In Dixville Notch, where midnight voting became a tradition in 1960, the town’s remaining five residents delivered a surprise victory for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg with three write-in votes (one from a registered Republican). The town’s other two votes were split by Sen. Bernie Sanders and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. 

In the nearby town of Millsfield, WMUR reported that most of the residents cast their ballots in the Republican primary, with 16 voting for the incumbent, President Donald Trump, and one for former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota received two votes, doubling the totals of Buttigieg, Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, who got one vote each.
