According to reports, President Trump is off to an early lead in New Hampshire after two small towns counted their ballots.

On Tuesday, the town of Millsfield favored the President over Democrat nominee Joe Biden in a 16-to- five vote . Meanwhile, the nearby town of Dixville Notch voted for Biden with a five-to-zero majority, which left President Trump leading by six votes.

 

The towns have a long tradition of counting votes at midnight on Election Day, which makes them the first in the nation to know the election results for their region.
