Top McCain, Obama Counties

Tim Craig

With most of the votes now apparently counted, the results from the Nov. 4 election show President-elect Barack Obama received at least 70 percent of the vote in six jurisdictions. Obama got 88.6 percent of the vote in Petersburg, 79.1 percent in Richmond, 78.3 percent in Charlottesville, 71.7 percent in both Alexandria and Arlington and 71 percent in Norfolk, according to State Board of Elections.

Arizona Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) eclipsed the 70 percent mark in two locations, Poquoson, where he got 74 percent and Scott County, where he got 71 percent. McCain also received at least 68 percent of the vote in Bedford, Augusta, Powhatan and Rockingham counties as well as Colonial Heights.

Sentor-Elect Mark R. Warner (D) topped 70 percent in 29 jurisdictions, including 90 percent in Petersburg, 84.5 percent in Richmond, 83.6 percent in Charlottesville and 82 percent in Martinsville.

Having the population of these jurisdictions in addition to the vote percentage would tell us more about their influence on the election. (The same is true for the earlier post about the swing counties.)
