Late last week, the San Diego Registrar of Voters released the voter canvass files from the November 2nd, 2010 election. These files provide the precinct-by-precinct vote breakdown for all the elections in San Diego County. I found lots of interesting data, but Rostra policywonks might be intrigued to know how the vote came down on the City of San Diego’s sales tax increase, Prop. D. Using GIS software, I’ve mapped out the No on D vote.
No on D votes weren’t isolated to GOP-friendly neighborhoods – strong opposition extended into “purple” precincts with large numbers of Decline to State & Democratic voters, including Mount Soledad, Mira Mesa, Southeast San Diego, Otay Mesa, San Ysidro, and Mission Beach.
Yes on D votes were concentrated mainly around SDSU, UCSD, Hillcrest, North Park, South Park, Kensington, and City Heights.
Here’s the vote break-down, by Council District:
CD 1: 37% Yes, 63% No
CD 2: 40% Yes, 60% No
CD 3: 50% Yes, 50% No
CD 4: 38% Yes, 62% No
CD 5: 31% Yes, 69% No
CD 6: 35% Yes, 65% No
CD 7: 37% Yes, 63% No
CD 8: 39% Yes, 61% No
