DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. – With less than three weeks to go until the New Hampshire primary, the tiny town of Dixville Notch has saved its tradition of voting at the stroke of midnight from extinction.
Then, in the 2016 election cycle, the New Hampshire AG's office investigated reports of voter fraud, finding that a few of the votes cast were from people who didn't technically didn't live there.
Although Dixville Notch gets all the media attention, two other locations in northern New Hampshire also hold midnight elections.
The town of Millsfield, 12 miles south of Dixville Notch, had midnight voting as far back as 1952 but later stopped.
While that hasn't been the case this election in Dixville Notch, Tillotson, whose dad brought the national media to the mountains in the 1960s, said the nostalgic, underlying message is what's most important.
