We all know what it’s like when we’re presented with the most simple of tasks but for some unknown reason we’re incapable of not screwing it up.
So spare a thought for this guy, the first person to physically cast a vote in the US election in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire. The clock strikes midnight, he strides up to the ballot box, the cameras start flashing, and he misses the slot to put his vote in.
The very first vote was just cast in Dixville Notch, NH, and they missed the hole on the first try. God help us all tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/Ag7BvCuDtk

If there was ever a metaphor for this election.
The first voter in Dixville Notch tried to drop his ballot in the box. And missed.
What an appropriate way to start the election.

The first guy to vote in Dixville Notch just fumbled and it missed the ballot slot. Happy 2016.

Some people had no sympathy.
Dixville Notch dude who missed ballot box – his vote should be disqualified #Election2016

While others could really relate.
Better luck next time.
