The state Election Board has released a large amount of data from races across the state that is now available on its website. You can check out PDFs of county results for each race, and download precinct-level data for further analysis if you have a database program such as Microsoft Access.
In contrast to my earlier map of county-by-county results, here’s a precinct-level map of the gubernatorial race between Republican Mary Fallin and Democrat Jari Askins. Click image for a closer view.
As you can see, Oklahoma is still overwhelmingly a red state, although there are pockets of blue scattered among precincts in southwestern and southeastern Oklahoma, as well as some urban precincts in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Interestingly, some of the purple, tied precincts had hundreds of votes. Precinct 511 in Caddo County gave both Fallin and Askins 352 votes each. Precinct 60 in Pontotoc County gave the candidates 244 votes each. Over in Cherokee County, voters in Precinct 22 split 85-85.
Meanwhile, political blogger Jamison Faught has a nice set of election maps over at his site, The Musings of Muskogee Politico.
