The residents of Dixville Notch, NH, have voted 5 for Obama, 5 for Romney (first tie ever). The town has 2 Dems, 3 Reps and 5 Independents. However, they voted 7-3 for the Republican Lamontagne over Dem Hassan, so at least in that part of NH, independents of a Rep bend are breaking for Obama in the presidential contest!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  How does a tie... (1+ / 0-)

    ... 'point to an Obama win'...?

    That is illogical..., just as illogical as polls showing numbers too close to call a winner.  I'm privately convinced the pollsters are skewing their totals.  Oh, they may be asking questions of people, but I don't for one second believe they're asking random people.  I think they're cherry-picking the ones they want to count so they can arrive at a "statistical tie."  They've done that in 2000, '02, '04, '06, '08, '10, and now in '12.

    I think someone has e-voting machines to sell..., e-voting machines that can be pre-set or number totals manipulated at the end of the evening since most don't have a receipt to provide the voter with a record of her/his vote.

    To me a tie bodes ill, and toward another stolen presidential election like in 2000 & 2004.

    Vote on paper ballots that can be hand-counted.  The optical scanners can do the first count, the hand-count can verify the scanner totals.  Or, if there's a statistical tie, then the paper ballots can be hand-counted out in the open (like they do in MN where the last two elections involved hand-counts).

    [Obviously, with so few residents of Dixville Notch an optical scanner is not necessary.  They only have enough voters that their totals can be hand-counted and verified quite easily in a short amount of time.]

  •  I don't know what I'll miss more (0+ / 0-)

    the "stolen election" hysterics (who conveniently change the subject when we win) or the ridiculous prognosticators ("Romney had grilled cheese for lunch, which indicates a subpar performance on election day with midwestern widows")...maybe I won't miss either of them.

    In any case, if they go away, I'll do my best to miss them both.

    I can't believe our election is being decided by people who can't tell the difference between republicans and democrats...that's like letting a dog choose what color to paint your house.
