The unincorporated village of Dixville Notch, NH has 10 registered voters. They open the polls at midnight and close them once every registered voter has cast their ballot. The results are in. 

For the first time ever, it's a tie, 5 votes each.

Dixville doesn't always pick the winner, but this year they certainly play into the consensus media narrative that this election is neck and neck.

For the record, in 2008, Obama won Dixville Notch 15-6.

Update: A little later, in the small town of Harts Location, NH, where they also start voting at midnight, the results came in at 23 for Obama, 9 for Romney and 1 for Johnson. In 2008 Harts Location went 17 for Obama, 10 for McCain with 2 write-ins for Ron Paul.

We published the first issue of the South Side Business News in March 2004. The website, SouthSideBusiness.com was launched just a few months later. The hard copy paper grew to a circulation of 5,000 and was distributed on the southeast side of Colorado Springs and in Security, Widefield and Fountain. It became evident by 2011 that if we wanted to expand our reach, and our readership (and we did) we would need a new plan. Broadening distribution of hard copy would actually bring diminishing returns or cause us to raise ad rates, which would be counter to our purpose of providing an affordable ad venue for small business.

In October 2011, thanks to assistance from local web master, Dave Stone, we took the digital leap and relaunched the site in a new, easy on the eyes format. The South Side Business News became SouthSideBusiness.com, an all digital, continuously updated online newspaper, focused on the small business community in and around Colorado Springs, Security, Widefield and Fountain.

October 2011 was the first month of publishing in the new format. The website was already getting pretty good traffic, having been up for several years, displaying a pdf version of the current print issue. That month we received 2162 visits from 1165 unique visitors. In our first year over year comparison, October 2012 was a new record for website traffic to SouthSideBusiness.com, with 8186 visits from 4075 unique visitors; an increase of nearly 400%. For the record, our hit count for October 2012 was 237,811, but that's actually a tabulation of files called up from a server, not individual users.

To say the relaunch was successful would be an understatement. We appreciate the continued support of our readers, our advertisers, contributing writers and all the PR folks out there who send us content from time to time. Incidently, if you have a press release, announcement, event you'd like to share, you can always send it to This email address is being protected from spambots.
