How Solon Residents Voted In the 2012 Election

We delve into election results to see how Solon residents voted on the presidential, senate and other races down the ballot.

Barack Obama won the national vote and he won in Ohio.

He also won in Solon, according to unofficial vote totals from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

While Cuyahoga County is a Democratic stronghold, Republicans needed to perform well in the suburbs to shave off votes from the president's total.

While Romney performed better in Solon than he did countywide, he did not do enough. Obama collected 6,983 votes to Romney's 5,935.

In addition, Solon residents also chose Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown over GOP challenger Josh Mandel.

But Solon did not always go Democratic. David Joyce, the GOP candidate for U.S. Congress to replace Steven LaTourette, was picked by Solon voters over Democrat Dale Blanchard. They also chose state Sen. Tom Patton, a Republican, over Democrat Jennifer Brady.

Solon residents favored one candidate that did not win: Anthony Fossaceca, the Democratic candidate for the 6th Ohio House District, won in Solon but lost the election to GOP Rep. Marlene Anielski.

Here's a breakdown of how each of the precincts went for president and for each of the other major races:

I voted by mail last week. It sure would be nice for the B.O.E. to send me some type of confirmation to let me know that my vote was counted. I'm really suspect of the whole election process. The Bank I have used for the last 43 years won't cash my check anymore without my drivers license but people can vote without an I.D.
