— -- The nine voters of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, became some of the first in the state -- and consequently, first in the nation -- to cast their ballots in the presidential primary in the early hours of Tuesday.

New Hampshire has held the "First in the Nation" presidential primary since 1920, and since 1960, Dixville Notch residents have gathered to cast their votes at the stroke of midnight.

All nine ballots were cast within seconds, and quickly tallied.
