DIKSVILL NOTCH (QHA) -

In the US, in the village Diksvill Notch in the northern New Hampshire, the first site to vote in the presidential elections was opened, The Washington Post informs.

It was midnight in the village at the time of voting. In accordance with the laws of the State of New Hampshire, settlements with a population of up to 100 people, have the right to open vote at this time. Only 7 people voted in the elections in the village Diksvill Notch, but their vote is illuminated by dozens of journalists as the start of the election day in the United States. This tradition has developed in the United States since 1960 and the village bears the name of "the first polling station in the country."

The votes on the site are already counted: Four people voted for Hillary Clinton, two - for Donald Trump, and one - for the libertarian Harry Johnson.

In most states of the Atlantic US voting will begin at 13:00 Kyiv time.

In 2012 elections, ten people voted in Diksvill Notch. Five of them voted for Barack Obama, another five – for Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
