The five residents of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, cast the first ballots in New Hampshire's primary at midnight Tuesday, and the small winner was former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who did not campaign in the state and wasn't on the ballot. Bloomberg got the only write-in vote in the Republican primary, beating President Trump, and he got two Democratic write-in votes, putting him ahead of Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), each of whom got one vote.
