Election 2012: Were La Grange and La Grange Park Obama or Romney Towns?

Complete precinct-level results for Tuesday's election in La Grange and La Grange Park, including turnout and how the data stacks up against other LTHS-area towns.

The Cook County Clerk's Office has released the complete information for all Cook precincts in Tuesday's election. We did a bit of work and ran the numbers to find out how Western Springs and neighboring towns voted, and how turnout was.

In an election year where turnout dipped nationally to 57.5 percent, La Grange, La Grange Park and other nearby towns excelled, all bringing out 70-80 percent turnout.

Along with the nation, both La Grange and La Grange Park voted to re-elect President Obama, with the President recieving 54.7 and 57.9 percent of the vote in those communities, respectively. In contrast, Western Springs went for Romney.

The President won every precinct in La Grange Park, but results were more mixed in La Grange, from Lyons 7 in the northeast that went 449 to 79 for Obama, to Lyons 43, Lyons 47 and Lyons 72, which all favored Mitt Romney.

You can find your precinct using these maps of Lyons Township and Proviso Township.

(Note: The town distribution here is approximate due to some precincts barely overlapping towns. For instance, Lyons 28 and Lyons 69 cover parts of both Western Springs and La Grange Highlands.)
