Tradition: 2 New Hampshire towns cast votes after midnight

A majority of polling stations on the East Coast will start at 6:00 or 7:00 am (1100 or 1200 GMT) on Tuesday.

In some of the first officially counted results of the 2020 USA presidential election, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has collected all five votes from Dixville Notch, a township in New Hampshire.

In a USA voting tradition, Dixville Notch, a township in New Hampshire voted at midnight, releasing some of the first Election Day results.

More than 94 million voters have already cast their ballots - about 60 million in mail-in votes and 34 million in early, in-person voting.

However, the president won in Millsfield by a tally of 16 to five.

"I don't agree with him on many things, but I think it's time to find out what unites us, not what divides us", he explained in a message published on the village's social network Twitter.

The hamlet is located near the U.S. Biden spent most of Monday in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Selectman Les Otten drops a ballot in a box shortly after midnight for the USA presidential election at the Hale House at Balsams Hotel in the hamlet of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire November 3, 2020.

Trump made campaign stops in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin on Monday, while Biden traveled to OH in the day and Pennsylvania on Election Eve.

Between the complications of the coronavirus pandemic and the huge amount of mail-in voting, the general election will see this year, it's highly unlikely that the rest of the country can expect to process their votes this fast.

Americans are voting for president, of course, but also are out in force to elect their members of Congress and other representatives in state and local races as well.

Moreover, many voters are anxious by the reality of an increasingly divided nation suffering from bitter partisan fights, violent racial conflicts and worsening social injustice.
