Bush scores a – very – small victory:
DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. (Reuters) – President Bush scored a symbolic victory on Tuesday, capturing the first Election Day votes in a tiny New Hampshire hamlet whose residents traditionally cast the first ballots in the U.S. presidential race.
Voters in Dixville Notch, about 15 miles from the Canadian border, backed Bush over Democratic challenger John Kerry by a margin of 19 to 7, election officials said. Independent candidate Ralph Nader received no votes, they said.
Word is, Bush and Kerry tied in Hart’s Location.
