San Diego County Presidential Results by Community

Google AdSense

After waiting until the final vote was counted (just over 4 weeks after election day), I was able to extract the election result data provided by the San Diego County of Registrar's office into a format where I can query and produce some reports. Over the next few weeks (when I get time), I will compute and blog the election results for San Diego County communities for each of the 2008 general election major contests.

This post is part of a multi-post series breaking down the San Diego County 2008 General Election vote totals in several different contests including the presidential and state proposition election totals. The data was taken from the San Diego County Registrar of Voter's office and converted/analyzed to produce the reports. To view other posts, please browse my blog using my San Diego Politics category. Once all of the posts are completed, then I will post an index to each post.

The term "community" is used to describe a place within the City of San Diego boundary. The term "unincorporated" means that the place is not a city (corporated). Unincorporated areas include many towns and villages.

First, each of the San Diego County cities are listed with their vote totals. Next, the City of San Diego vote total is broken down into each community. Finally, the "Unincorporated Areas" (which is listed as a total under cities) is broken down into towns and villages.

Contest Overview

I didn't include the election results for Barr/Root, Keyes/Drake, McKinney/Clemente, or Nader/Gonzalez because the table wouldn't have fit on the page and none of these candidates received more than 2% (Nader/Gonzalez received 1% in Lemon Grove and 1.03% in Imperial Beach).

In California, Obama/Biden received 61.1% and McCain/Palin received 37.1%. In San Diego County, Obama/Biden received 53.95% and McCain/Palin received 43.79%.

Here's the breakdown for the Presidential Election.

  1. You missed the community with the highest percentage of Obama voters: Chollas Park (86.28%).

  2. Thanks for the catch. I must have missed that one when I was looking over the results for the top 5s.

  3. Hi Jim,

    Great job, there! Do you also have the County breakdown for the 2012 Election?

    Thanks!

    Clint
