DIXVILLE, N.H. — Election Day started off nicely for Donald Trump, who won over the voters of three small New Hampshire precincts by a 32-25 margin.

The polls, which opened around midnight, closed once the three communities finished casting their ballots, according to USA Today.

In Dixville Notch, Hillary Clinton beat her Republican opposition 4-2. In Hart’s Location, Clinton won with 17 votes compared to Trump’s 14. The largest advantage came in Millsfield, where Trump won 16-4.

“It’s important for us to revisit history that has been forgotten by most people,” Wayne Urso, an election official in Millsfield.

New Hampshire law allows communities with under 100 voters to open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as voters have cast their ballots.
