N.H. first voter bobblehead on sale


UPI News Service, 09/11/2007 

Bobbleheads are politically correct in New Hampshire where you can get a jiggly doll of the man who voted first in each first presidential primary for 40 years.

So for $15.95 you can get a Neil Tillotson bobblehead, with proceeds benefiting the state's historical society, the New Hampshire Union Leader in Manchester reported Tuesday. The figurine depicts the Dixville Notch businessman standing over a ballot box, paper ballot in hand, just as he did in real life from 1960 to 2000, the newspaper said.

William Veillette, executive director of the organization, said he wanted a bouncing head doll of Tillotson because only "real political junkies" know who he is "and so here's an opportunity to raise him in people's consciousness."

"He was the first of the first," Veillette said. "The state is the first to vote, and he's the first person to vote in the state."

Tillotson died in 2001 at the age of 102.
