The Balsams resort is temporarily closed but next Tuesday residents of Dixville Notch still plan on being the first voters in the nation.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
Just at midnight, while sensible people are sleeping, folks from Dixville Notch will be voting.
But for the first time since 1960 they won’t be at the Balsams resort.
It’s closed for a renovation.
Instead they will gather at a nearby ski lodge, says Scott Tranchemontagne, a spokesman for the resort.
