PRECINCT BY PRECINCT VOTE TOTALS: What Really Decided the Election? A Closer Look at How Precincts in Watauga County Voted for the Candidates

Nov. 7, 2012. The votes have been tallied. The results are in, the winners are celebrating and the losers are licking their wounds. But on closer inspection, looking at specific precinct data, it might become apparent exactly where candidates won or lost the election. It is, however, important to keep in mind that 321 provisional ballots have not been counted yet. The Watauga County Board of Elections has to decide whether or not those were valid ballots, and if those ballots are valid, those votes will be added to the totals. So any races that are that within 321 votes may be reversed. Also, the specific precincts that early-voters reside in have not been made public yet.
