Alain Goupil La Tribune The three US states located along the border with Estrie, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont overwhelmingly voted in favor of Joe Biden in Tuesday's presidential election.

In the state of Maine, where the turnout reached an all-time high, Joe Biden garnered 53% of the vote against 44% for Donald Trump.

Over 80% of voters in Maine have exercised their right to vote, while the turnout usually hovers between 50 and 60%.

More than half of voters in Maine had chosen to vote by mail rather than going to the polls. This, however, did not prevent long lines in front of the polling stations, especially in the cities of Portland and Lewiston. However, no delays or incidents were reported throughout the day.

Besides the election for president, another important battle was at play in Maine: that between the Republican senator Susan Collins and her Democratic adversary Sara Gideon.

After 85% of the vote count, Senator Collins leads with 51% of the vote against 43% for Gideon.

New Hampshire voters also had their confidence in the Democratic candidate. Joe Biden garnered 53% of the support against 45% for Donald Trump.

By midnight Tuesday morning, the tradition of voters in Dixville Notch being the first to vote in the United States was upheld. The five eligible voters set the tone by voting unanimously for candidate Joe Biden.

It is the first time in 60 years that the voters of Dixville Notch have given their support to a single candidate. In 1960, Richard Nixon won all nine voters' votes at the expense of John F. Kennedy.

At the same time, in Millsfield, 20 kilometers south of Dixville Notch, the 21 voters for their part voted overwhelmingly in favor of Donald Trump (16 votes) at the expense of Joe Biden (5 votes).
