Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden defeated President Trump by 5 votes to 0 in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, officials declared in their Election Day result on the 60th anniversary of the midnight voting tradition.

The big picture: Les Otten, a local selectman who ran for Maine governor in a 2010 GOP primary, was among those to vote for Biden in the township near the border with Canada, per WMUR9. "It's time to find what unites us as opposed to what divides us," he said. It was better news for Trump in nearby Millsfield, where he beat Biden by 16 votes to 5 in the township's midnight vote, AP notes.
