Change in the air

I think this was on the television as I left the office, but it’s a nice little detail nonetheless, and brings home the hint of change in the air after eight years of George W Bush:

In keeping with tradition, voting began at the stroke of midnight in a handful of remote towns in the north-eastern state of New Hampshire.

The residents of Dixville Notch have been meeting in the town’s ballot room at midnight each election day since 1960.

Mr Obama won the town’s poll by 15 votes to six for Mr McCain – a landslide victory after more than 40 years of Republican loyalty.
