The Political Fix blog on the STLtoday.com website managed to acquire the township level results from Tuesday’s Proposition A vote. Upon finding the data, I set about mapping the results to better visualize and compare them to the Proposition M results from 2008.
Two maps are shown below: one shows the percentage of people who voted in favor of Proposition A in each township, the other shows the increase in support voters showed for Proposition A as compared to Proposition M. The map for Proposition M can be found here.
What jumps out immediately is the broad level of support Proposition A had: only five townships in St. Louis County voted no. Every single township showed an increase in support for Proposition A of at least 4% compared to Proposition M. What is truly astonishing, though, is the level of support that came from North County. Seven townships voted in excess of 75% in favor; three of those in excess of 80%. Four North County townships increased their support for Proposition A by more than 25% compared to Proposition M. It appears Propostion A supporters did absolutely phenomenal jobs getting the word out.
Now with the public’s strong vote of confidence in Metro, it is time for Metro and East-West Gateway to get to work restoring and improving the region’s transit system. The people are depending on you.
This is just amazing. It's like music to my ears.
