Biden wins traditional midnight vote in Dixville Notch in first landslide since Nixon in 1960 – which he went on to LOSE

JOE Biden has won a traditional midnight vote in a tiny New Hampshire town, taking all five votes in a landslide.

The last time a candidate took all of the votes in Dixville Notch was to Richard Nixon in 1960 – where he went on to lose the election.

The small town near the US-Canada border is as among one of the first places in the country that count their votes on Election Day.

The ballots were cast just minutes after midnight.

In line with tradition all eligible voters gathered in to the "Ballot Room" at The Balsams resort to cast their secret ballot.

The votes were then tallied and announced – hours before anyone else in the country.

The candidate with the most votes doesn't necessarily predict who is going to be tipped to win the election.

In 2016, Dixville Notch went for Hillary Clinton who didn't clinch enough electoral votes to secure her spot in the White House.

The last time voters in Dixville Notch placed all their votes with one candidate was in the 1960 election.

Nixon took all the votes in landslide victory in the township but ultimately went on to lose the election to John F. Kennedy.

Last night, President Donald Trump made his final pitch to voters, wrapping up a whirlwind tour that saw him visit some of Election Day's key battleground states.

Trump held five rallies in four states – including North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The president made his final pitch for a second term in the White House in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his adult children by his side.

He told supporters: "I think we're going to win everything. I think tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest wins in the history.

"This is not the crowd of somebody who is going to lose the state of Michigan. This is not the crowd of a second place finisher.

"We want a big win. Not just a win. A big win."

At each each event, the president touched on familiar themes, from his support of the military and economic record, to hitting out a China and the potential for voter fraud.

Meanwhile, Trump's Democratic rival Biden headed to Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday, before traveling to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, in what many believe will be the most fiercely contested state of the contest.

Trump and Biden's rallies were both different in their approach and substance.
