Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden secured his first victory as US election results were announced in a small New Hampshire town.

According to Daily Mail, the final result posted on a handwritten poster board by Dixville Notch at 12.03am on Tuesday, November 3, showed that all five votes went to Biden.

Located near the Canadian border, Dixville Notch has reportedly been among the first in the US to reveal election results for the past 60 years.

In a related report, President Donald Trump recorded a victory in Millsfield, another New Hampshire town just 12 miles away from Dixville.

The ballots in Millsfield, which were opened at 12.01am, showed that Trump won that contest with 16 votes to Biden's five.

Meanwhile, a report by the New York Post indicates that ballots have been mailed into the New York City Board of Elections (BOE) in the name of dead voters. The newspaper says that the records show that the elections board received an absentee ballot from Frances Reckhow of Staten Island, a registered Democrat.

Briefly.co.za gathered that the BOE mailed an absentee ballot requested by Frances M Reckhow of Bedell Avenue on September 24.

In other news, in a seemingly last-minute campaign strategy to urge people to vote, Donald Trump has tweeted a video compilation of his dances during his different campaign periods captioning it "VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!".

In the video the popular hit YMCA by The Village People, which happens to be Trump's patent song for his campaigns, is heard in the background.

The president is seen grooving to the beats on stage as massive crowds cheers. With his trademark dance style, Trump swings his fisted hands from side to side and pumping the air around him while his feet stayed rooted to one spot on the stage.
