Lots of 2012 election stats for Orange

Lots of election stats for Orange in the 2012 general election are here, broken down by a gazillion different things. This had been out there through the campaign with daily updates of absentee and early vote stats, now it includes election day as well.

2012 General Election by precinct now up - (and hey Mark M White Cross almost passed transit)

Tracy Reams at the BoE sent me this today: "Good afternoon. Wanted to let you know that we have completed sorting through the 54,229 ballots cast prior to Election Day and the results are available on our website at http://www.co.orange.nc.us/elect/archive.asp. PDF is report by VTD (Voting Tabulation District) where all votes cast are reported in their home precincts."

Here is the direct link http://www.co.orange.nc.us/elect/documents/2012VTDResults.pdf all this should be graphed and mapped with spreadsheets on the state board website after Christmas

I'd note the following in a quick look at the.pdf file

Official Vote total released Friday for Orange - Obama 70.22%, Transit 58.88% Yes

Officially canvassed election results were releaesd by the Orange County Board of Elections Friday afternoon.

About 160 of the 400 provisional ballots were counted, along with civilian absentee ballots received thru 11/9 and military and overseas ballots received thru 11/15. A total of 77,050 votes were cast (compared with 75,194 in 2008). Prez wound up 70.22% to 28.06%, Dalton had 64.44, to McCrory's 32.42% with the Libertarian 3.08% (above Howe's statewide average of 2.1%)

The official canvass inched the YES on Transit up from 58.83% to 58.88%.

I also got from the BoE some stats broken down by early vote site (the online canvass has all five sites lumped in together - the totals will be broken out by precinct by early January).

WATCH: Valerie Foushee on Public Service

Just wanted to share Valerie Foushee's new video on public service. It's a powerful look at how, growing up in Orange County, her parents instilled in the values of education and listening. 

If you like the video, I hope you'll share it with friends and neighbors. Valerie has been a great representative for Orange County and I'm looking forward to what she does in Raleigh.

Voter registration hot: 11,223 since 1/1, and 3,320 of those since 8/1

Voter registration is heavy in Orange County, with 11,223 new voters since January 1, with 3,320 of those August 1 through September 21.

Conventional analysis focuses on net voter registration e.g. changes in totals (by party) since January 1, but I chose to look also at gross totals to see how registration drives are faring, then subtracting to see cancellations.

 One big observation, unaffiliated registration has been at record highs this year for Orange, with Ds and Rs at historic lows. I broke out this year in two parts before showing the total for the year. The cancellations are the total of gross minus net, and covers those who move away andd register elsewhere, die, or have felony convictions recorded.

 Looks like registration for this year is likely to set an all-time record at the current pace, as registration was quite high for the May Amendment One vote. Regular registration ends October 12, with registration allowed at early voting October 18- November 3
