US election 2016: Donald Trump takes early lead in New Hampshire

The Republican candidate, Donald Trump has taken early lead over his Democrat contender Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.

The first results have been counted in one of the most contentious U.S presidential votes of recent times.

Across four New Hampshire towns where the polls opened at midnight, Republican Donald Trump came out ahead by 32-25 according to Euro News.

However, the very first result, coming from Dixville Notch, saw Democrat Hillary Clinton initially slip into an early lead.

She received four votes, to Trump’s two. Libertarian Gary Johnson came out with one vote in the tiny town and there was one surprise write-in ballot for Mitt Romney.

Dixville Notch has historically been the first to cast and count its ballots. And this year was no exception.

Under state law, communities with fewer than 100 voters can request permission to open the polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered residents have voted.
