Maybe this will be a close election: President Obama and Mitt Romney tied in Dixville Notch, one of two tiny New Hampshire villages that get to cast the first votes of the presidential election on Election Day.

Each candidate received five votes -- the first tie in Dixville Notch history. In 2008, Obama received 15 of the 21 votes cast.

In Hart's Location, the other New Hampshire town that enjoys first-vote status, Obama won with 23 votes, Romney received 9 and Libertarian Gary Johnson received 1 vote. In 2008, Obama received 17 of the 29 votes cast.

The towns have proudly held their first-vote status since 1948.
