Obama Defeated Romney in Glen Burnie

A look at the vote totals for precincts in Glen Burnie show President Obama narrowly edged challenger Mitt Romney on Election Day.

President Barack Obama earned just 121 more votes than Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Glen Burnie on Tuesday. But an early voting turnout favorable to Obama gave the incumbent 51.31 percent of total local votes to Romney's 45.56 percent, according to unofficial results from the Anne Arundel County Board of Elections.

Voters who cast ballots early were able to vote at any of the five early voting locations, so early votes in Glen Burnie were influenced by Anne Arundel County residents who live outside of Glen Burnie.

Obama received 77.98 percent of votes at Rippling Woods Elementary School (precinct 002-014), which was the highest percentage for Obama.

Romney received 61.78 percent of votes at North County Senior High School (precinct 001-008), which was the highest percentage for Romney. North County Senior High School also saw the highest turnout of registered voters, with 60.74 percent showing up to vote.

Amazing how 19 counties out of 23 voted for Romney. Redistricting, don't you love it!

Before you add up the votes for an individual, you need to count the provisional and absentee ballots. Otherwise that is the type of math used by MBN (The Make Believe News network)
