Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has won in the two U.S. towns that traditionally open U.S. election voting.

In Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, he won 15 votes to his Republican rival John McCain's six - becoming the first Democrat to win there since 1968.

In Hart's Location he won 17 votes, while McCain won 10, and Ron Paul two, showing 100 percent voter turnout.

Hart's Location began the practice of voting early in 1948 so that railroad employees could vote before going to work.
