I would say New Castle County in 1980.  Not only was Reagan winning by just a single vote in this not very small county unusual, but it also was the vote that determined whether the County would continue its bellwether streak which had at that point, been ongoing since 1936.  The bellwether streak there would finally end in 2000 when Gore won the County.

This last year, probably the closeness of  Yuma Co., Arizona.

Overall: San Francisco going for Al Smith, despite Hoover being a Bay Area namesake and thus taking the other 9 counties comfortably. The other remaining Smith counties were Dixie North counties.

Esmeralda County, NV, which voted for Bush over Perot in 1992 by a single vote.
Also Lapeer County, MI, which Bush carried in 1992 with just 35% of the vote.
Marquette County, MI (in the UP) went Ford '76 - Carter '80 - Reagan '84 -- each time by less than 1 percentage point.
