Glen Rock Voters Choose Obama

According to unofficial election data, more Glen Rock residents thought Obama was the man for the job. Still, Republicans overall won support from borough residents.

When it came time to exercize their civic duty, Glen Rock voters at the polls again thought a Democrat would be a better president than the Republican challenger.

According to unofficial election data, 2,976 votes were cast for President Barack Obama out of 5,662 overall. Republican Mitt Romney trailed with 2,647 votes. It wasn't a landslide – Obama was favored to 52.5 percent to 46.7 percent but it was convincing.

The votes do not include absentee ballots, which could be high given the unique weather conditions many faced on Tuesday. Voter turnout checked in at 67 percent, down more than 10 perecent from 2008. The vast majority of the borough did not have power on Tuesday.

In 2008, Obama took home more votes from Glen Rock than Sen. John McCain, his Republican challenger. The margin of victory was much larger four years ago – Obama defeated McCain 54.6 percent to 44.5 percent.

John Kerry also found more Glen Rock residents checking the box next to his name during his unsuccessful run at the White House in 2004 with 51.5 percent of the vote.

In 2012, Glen Rock, like its neighbor Ridgewood, didn't align itself to one particular party. U.S. Senator Bob Menendez scored roughly 400 more votes than opponent Joe Kyrillos. In the other legislative body, incumbent Tea Party darling Scott Garrett plucked about 300 more votes than Teaneck Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen.

Though they were soundly defeated county-wide, more Glen Rock voters punched the ticket for Republican freeholder candidates Rob Hermansen and Peg Watkins by narrow margins.

Locally, incubment Republicans Carmine Nogara and Joan Orseck (who switched allegiances to the Republican ticket for this election) defeated Howard Fox.

Democrats don't really want to pay taxes. That's why Glen Rock almost always votes for local conservatives. However, the democrats don't mind if everyone else pays higher taxes, and Obame wins yet again. Hypocracy at its best.

Blum, director of the Project on http://www.hermesbeltsoutletsc.com Fair Representation, a small legal foundation that helped organize http://www.coachfactoryonlineen.com the suit. Civil rights leaders, on the other hand, pointed http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlineau.com to the role the law played in the recent election, http://www.coachoutletuso.net with courts relying on it to block voter http://www.coachbagsoutletel.com identification requirements and cutbacks on early voting. http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com “In the midst of the recent assault on voter access, the http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com Voting Rights Act is playing a pivotal role beating http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net back discriminatory voting measures,” said Debo P. http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net Adegbile, the acting president of the NAACP Legal Defense http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com and Educational Fund.
