About NH voting...

First of all, here is Dixville Notch:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dixville+Notch,+NH+03576/@44.8708791,-71.3103223,1097m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x4cb6ba1279407513:0xa7835aa31a34b40c!8m2!3d44.8708811!4d-71.3059135

As you can see, it is a "grand resort" from the early 1900's and the 8 voters there depend on the resort (currently under renovation) for their living. The other two towns are similar (non-real world) enclaves that are truly just out of place artifacts lost in the White Mountains National Forest. In short this is fun but these voters are to regular citizens as Marvin the Martian is to Bugs Bunny....

1. Here--an even better 'picture' of that place....

Several of them, actually.

This makes it pretty clear in a rather stark way:

2. Thank you for that.

Over the years I've wondered what would happen if one of the residents of Dixville Notch were to refuse to stay up to midnight, and insist on voting in the morning.
