The ballots cast shortly after midnight by residents of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire were tied for the first time in history, with President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney each receiving five votes. The first results of the presidential race, by tradition, were tallied in the area. This is the first time there was a tie in Dixville and voters weighed in. At least 120 million Americans are expected to vote on giving Obama a second term or replacing him with Romney. Their decision will set the country's course for four years on spending, taxes, healthcare and foreign policy challenges like the rise of China and Iran's nuclear ambitions.
