  • Obama | | Lancaster PA Blog
    half a percent Ron Paul got two tenths of a percent as a write in the numbers indicate a changing electorate within our county I was actually astonished to compare for myself the decisive break from voting patterns in the 2000 and 2004 elections Forgive the poor graphics quality I did these myself Here are a few ways of breaking down the numbers City vs County Lancaster City landslided for Obama 76 to McCain s 23 The city represented 21 975 votes or 10 of county voters Compare this to much slimmer margins in 2004 where Kerry beat Bush 62 to 38 and 2008 where Gore beat Bush 57 to 39 Once you subtract the city s votes Lancaster County favored McCain less overwhelmingly 59 to 40 Non city residents cast 202 816 votes making up the other 90 of voters A margin of 19 points is gigantic but a shocking change from 2004 when Bush carried 69 to Kerry s 31 and 2000 when Bush also received 69 of the vote and Gore eked out 29 Urban vs Suburban Exurban Rural That breakdown however ignores the important fact that there are urban dwellers living in other municipalities beside Lancaster City Perhaps it is more fair to compare all the county s urban voters against the rest I ran the numbers comparing city and borough precincts against township precincts including the urbanized Lancaster Township with the boroughs In urbania county wide Obama beat McCain 56 43 with 73 366 voters weighing in 33 of voters In 2000 and 2004 Bush carried the county s urban areas 56 43 and 57 40 respectively Away from urban districts McCain beat Obama 61 37 with 151 425 voters Again this looks decisive until compared with Bush s victories in 2004 and 200 70 30 and 70 28 Stack the Deck What if we stack the deck Just for fun I picked out out all the municipalities in Lancaster County that went for Obama and pitted them against the rest of the county Here s how it looks Select Municipalities Obama 68 McCain 31 Eighteen percent of the Lancaster County electorate or 40 319 voters currently live in areas where a majority of their neighbors currently lean Democratic In 2004 those same municipalities on the whole went for Kerry by 61 38 and for Gore by just 57 39 The Rest of Municipalities McCain 61 Obama 38 Even in the most Republican areas of the county Democratic voters should have no trouble finding many neighbors who share their political viewpoint In these municipalities Bush carried 2004 by 69 30 and 2000 by 69 28 Perhaps most interesting is the list of municipalities who voted for Obama Columbia Borough Christiana Borough by a single vote Mountville Marietta Millersville Lancaster City Lancaster Township Columbia borough voted Democratic in 2000 but not in 2004 Lancaster City Lancaster Township and part of Millersville borough voted Democratic in both 2000 and 2004 Christiana and Mountville s votes came out of the blue Marietta has for some time been on the Democrats wishlist as a municipality to pick up If you d like to look at the raw data for yourself the County has a list of polling locations which you can use to decipher the election results for the past eight years Daniel Klotz November 10 2008 What I Saw as a Poll Watcher The entrance where I spent 12 5 hours Tuesday First UMC Lancaster I worked at my polling place for 14 straight hours on Tuesday I walked half a block to First United Methodist Church the polling location for Lancaster s 6th Ward 1st Precinct at 6 30 a m and left at 9 30 p m I had a good time with the other poll workers Bill from state senator Gib Armstrong s staff who was there to oppose the Lancaster County Home Rule Charter Charlie the Democratic Committee s precinct captain Roy a gentleman of 67 who was there to support Bob Barr and other Libertarian minded third party candidates and Leslie and Jessica who came from Millersville University to help Spanish speaking voters I was there to support a vote in favor of the Home Rule Charter I m pleased to say that my neighbors came through our precinct voted in favor of the charter by 61 to 39 and only 83 of 584 voters chose not to vote on the question at all Every voter was interesting and I wish I could remember and write about them all The most interesting stuff however happened after the polls closed when I took of my propaganda T shirt and pin stuck on my official Poll Watcher sticker and walked inside just before the doors were locked with my certificate from the county authorizing me to be there First a voting abnormality story from the afternoon A true patriot named Sarah who is about my age and lives just down the block from me on the other side of the street I d never met her before came to vote and found she was no longer in the signature book for this voting location She had voted there on the last four elections but somehow she had been purged from the rolls The election workers at our polling place made a good faith effort to find out where she was supposed to vote They successfully helped at least a dozen other people find their correct polling place throughout the day but not so with Sarah She wound up going to three other polling places only to be sent back to our location an hour and a half later The judge of elections inside our location then instructed her to cast a provisional ballot The certificate and sticker that allowed me to stay past closing The idea behind a provisional ballot is simple you complete a regular ballot then have it sealed inside a green envelope on which is written your contact information and a description
