From the AP: Obama wins in earliest vote

DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. (AP) — Democrat Barack Obama came up a big winner in the presidential race in Dixville Notch, N.H., where the nation's first Election Day votes were cast and counted early Tuesday.

Obama defeated John McCain 15-6. Independent Ralph Nader was also on the ballot, but received no votes.

Oh. My. Word. Dixville Notch? Seriously? Dixville hasn't gone to a Democrat since 1968, and just as a reference, had 26 voters last year. Compared to this year's 21. Last year they chose Bush over Kerry 19 to 7. We're seeing a near complete flip in numbers.

Buckle up, guys, this could get epic.
