The first votes of the 2016 race have officially been cast.
Three small towns in New Hampshire — Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart’s Location — voted at midnight to kick off Tuesday’s primary.
Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich were the early winners on the Republican side, each receiving a total of nine votes across the three towns. On the other side of the aisle, Bernie Sanders won handily, defeating Hillary Clinton with a vote count of 17 to nine . . .
In Dixville Notch, a town of 12, according to the 2010 census, three votes were cast for Kasich and two for Trump.
