Mapping the vote: Final presidential count

 

Editor's note: when this story appeared in Wednesday's paper, one of the first comments was, where are the maps? Here's the first.)

A voting district southeast of the Spokane Valley city limits can bask in the bright red glow of being the county’s most conservative Republican precinct.

Part of Browne’s Addition, just west of downtown Spokane, can claim bragging rights as the county’s most liberal Democratic precinct.

When Spokane County elections officials finalized the results of the Nov. 6 election Tuesday, there were no big surprises. Republicans Mitt Romney, Rob McKenna and Mike Baumgartner won the county even though Barack Obama captured the state and the presidency and Jay Inslee the governor’s office. Maria Cantwell was re-elected to the U.S. Senate. County voters overall turned thumbs down to a ballot measure on same-sex marriage although it passed statewide; like the state as a whole, they approved supermajorities for passing taxes and charter schools. . .

Mapping the vote: Another way to look at the 6th Dist race

Former state Rep. Dennis Dellwo came out on top in many of the precincts in last week's four-way contest for an open state House of Representatives seat.

But Republican Jeff Holy, who finished second overall and moves on to the general election against Democrat Dellwo, might have more to cheer about when one considers how the total GOP vote stacks up against Dellwo's total.

The winner of each precinct is in the map above. A map of Dellwo vs. the GOP field can be found in the post below.

Comings and goings

Forbes magazine has an interactive map of where people are moving from, and to, around the country. It’s not particularly surprising, but it’s fun to play with.
