The voters of New Hampshire have spoken… or at least, a handful of voters in a few locations.
Three tiny towns in the Granite State held their primary elections at midnight, with Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (D) winning two of them while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton (D) each won one.
Real estate mogul Donald Trump (R) finished in second place in all three communities.

In Dixville Notch, Kasich took three of the town’s five GOP votes while the other two voted for Trump, according to New Hampshire Union Leader reporter John Koziol, who posted the results on Twitter.
Sanders won by a landslide, collecting all four Democratic votes.
Kasich also won Hart’s Location with five votes to Trump’s four. Two voters went for Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Dr. Ben Carson each received one vote, according to results posted on Twitter by Local 22 anchor Lauren Maloney.
On the Democratic side, Sanders received 12 votes, Clinton got seven and someone named Mark Stewart Greenstein earned two votes.
Cruz won the town of Millsfield with nine votes while Trump finished in second place with three votes.
Hmm. Isn't that very close to the Canadian border? Did they photo ID the voters?
