(FOX NEWS) Two tiny villages in northern New Hampshire kicked off the 2012 election by casting the first votes early Tuesday.

President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney each won 5 votes in Dixville Notch, and in Hart’s Location Obama won with 23 votes, Romney received 9 and Libertarian Gary Johnson received 1 vote. The towns have enjoyed first-vote status since 1948.

Meanwhile, Romney was taking his nearly six-year campaign for the presidency all the way to Election Day, making last-minute plans to visit two vital battlegrounds on Tuesday, while Obama held a nighttime rally in Iowa Monday.
