Precinct Level Results

The County Board of Elections has posted the precinct level data online for the general election. Go check it out and see if anything jumps out at you. I am going to see if anything is worthy of a post when I have had a chance to fully process it all.

Also the Hedgehog Report has a good post about the stellar preformance (insert snarky tone here) of our glorious Board of Elections. I would love to have some insight on why things have been such a mess over there recently. Feel free to share insights in the comments or email me.

I was especially interested in the data on the Courtney Watson-Tony Salazar race in Council district 1 that was printed in last week's Flier. Although both Martin O'Malley and Ken Ulman had fewer votes in that district than their opponents, Watson won it fairly convincingly. She led in most of the 21 precincts, while Ulman led in six and O'Malley in only three. So she outdid her Democratic running mates at the vast majority of precincts. But it was intriguing to see how much better Ulman did than her at the two Centennial Lane precincts (2-5 and 2-10) and that the only precinct where O'Malley ran significally better than Ulman was at St. John's Lane (2-6). The appearance is that, while Watson is quite popular in the district as a whole, there are some people in the Centennial area who don't like her very much. Of course, she overcame it elsewhere. And it's obvious that some people in the St. John's Lane area were especially targetting Ulman for defeat. As an Ulman supporter, I'm pretty happy that other precincts didn't exhibit as much antipathy.
