Politico reports that a midnight vote once resulted in a tie. During the 2012 election between Romney and incumbent President Barack Obama, the candidates received five votes each in Dixville Notch.
The voting practice dates back to 1960. That year, all of Dixville Notch’s nine votes went toward Republican presidential nominee Richard Nixon’s first presidential bid. Nixon, however, did not go on to win his first presidential term until the 1968 election.
Sadly, the citizens of Dixville Notch are in danger of losing their right to vote at midnight as the development of a new ski resort in the area could encourage a population boom.

Though Clinton had an advantage over her Republican challenger throughout much of the election, Trump came on strong in the last few days and weeks of campaigning.
Polls from one week before election day showed that Clinton's lead had gone down to 1 percent over Trump. Statistician Nate Silver wrote last week that if Trump won New Hampshire, the electoral roadmap for both candidates could end up in an unprecedented tie. Despite Clinton's dwindling numbers, Silver predicted a silver lining for the former secretary of state.
“If Clinton lost New Hampshire but won her other firewall states, each candidate would finish with 269 electoral votes, taking the election to the House of Representatives,” Silver wrote.
"Or maybe not — if Clinton also lost the 2nd Congressional District of Maine, where polls show a tight race and where the demographics are unfavorable to her, Trump would win the Electoral College 270-268, probably despite losing the popular vote."
During the 2016 primary, Trump won 35 percent of the vote in New Hampshire, and captured 11 of 22 delegates in the process. Clinton was not as popular. She received fewer votes than Sanders and only captured nine of a possible 24 delegates.
