But the amazing thing is that this year Dixville Notch's results are unprecedented: Of the ten townsfolk who voted today, exactly half voted for President Obama and the other half chose Mitt Romney. Imagine that, exactly 50-50!
With those kinds of neck-and-neck early results in already as well as the reality that most political analysts are predicting a very close race, this year's election quite possibly could end up being the closest ever on record. Which means, more than any other election, every vote really does count and each registered voter should make every effort possible to cast your ballot before your local poll closes today.

Just think about it. You'll be setting a wonderful example for your children by your actions on Election Day that relays to them that you really care about America, your state, and local community and by extension that you are doing your part to create a better tomorrow not only for your own child but for all American families.
My own four children may be teenagers, but still the whistful image below that I captured this morning is my favorite...
