Dole had 31 votes to 20 for President Clinton and 5 for Ross Perot in combined results from Hart's Location, population 39, and Dixville Notch, population 33. Libertarian candidate Harry Browne got three votes. Between them, the towns had 26 registered Republicans, two dozen independents and nine Democrats.
