The newspaper, working with the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting, analyzed the November voting in Colorado City. The presidential vote overwhelmingly went to Mitt Romney. That’s probably not a surprise.
What’s interesting is how few of the total voters in Colorado City voted for president at all. A nifty chart with the AzCapitolTimes.com report shows Colorado City voters cast more ballots in the U.S. Senate race and the race for the U.S. House of Representatives. Even a handful of state and local elections received more votes than did the presidential race, which just about everywhere else always leads in ballots cast.
However, AzCapitolTimes.com reports, whatever ballots Colorado City voters did cast just about always went for the winning candidate. (In the case of Romney, he did win Arizona.)
This all spawns the question of what was the voting trend across the state line in Hildale. The data from the Washington County clerk indicates a more conventional voting pattern, with nearly all of the 122 voters casting ballots in the presidential election.
