Actually open at the stroke of midnight on Election Day. That's Dixville Notch nearby Millfield and Hart's Location. These three places are also the first ones to declare primary results because voters cast ballots so early the most storied bowling place of those three three is Dixville Notch an unincorporated township a couple miles south of the US Canada border. As of the twenty tenses there were only twelve residents. It's of this tiny place. Dixville Notch also holds a special place in many observers hearts in part because of its tradition which dates back to nineteen sixty. That same tradition of voting at midnight. Almost didn't happen this year.
