2002 & 2006 Details

Posted by David Keelan on Tuesday, November 21, 2006

The following spreadsheet is a breakdown of County Executive votes from 2002 and 2006. Interestingly enough, Chris Merdon had a very large jump in the number of votes over Steve Adler than Ken Ulman did over Jim Robey. Not that it matters now…

What will be interesting to see is the next voter registration data base.  From that we can see what the turn out was by party affiliation.

Playing with these numbers earlier I came to the unscientific conclusion that independents called this race.  I think up to 70% voted for Ulman.  I think voter turn out for democrats was lighter than 2002.

 Working from the left side you will see the polling location followed by 2006 results by candidate.  Then you will see the 2002 results by candidate.  Then you will see the differences between the two election cylces.

What was difficult about this exercise was that today we have more polling places than we did in 2002.  Where I could I combined the numbers under 2002 and under difference headings.
