Residents in Edgewater, Davidsonville and south county showed strong interest in the general election Tuesday, as voter turnout outpaced the national average in many precincts.
Turnout was especially high in pockets of south county, where nearly two-thirds of registered voters cast their ballots.
Poll results showed that voters heavily favored Mitt Romney throughout the region. So much so, that only two of the 18 precincts favored President Obama—voters at Shady Side and Lothian elementary schools.
Those who voted at Davidsonville Elementary, South River High, Southern High and Mayo Elementary proved to be the biggest Romney fans, as each of their precincts eclipsed the 60-percent mark for the GOP candidate.
In the precincts where Obama won, the final vote was very close as the Democrat earned 53.5 percent at Shady Side Elementary and 50.1 percent at Lothian Elementary.
