Kent Picked Obama in Landslide
Take a look at the tallies for each precinct in Kent — did your section of town vote Republican or Democrat?
It's likely no surprise to many Kent residents that the Tree City voted overwhelmingly to re-elect President Barack Obama in Tuesday's election.
The incumbent Democrat received a heavy majority of total votes cast by Kent voters for the two major-party candidates, both himself and Republican Mitt Romney, according to complete but unofficial results from the Portage County Board of Elections.
A total 10,003 votes were cast by Kent voters for the Republican and Democratic candidates.
Of those, Obama received 7,345, or about 73 percent. While Romney received 2,685, or about 27 percent, according to the board of elections.
Every single voting precinct in Kent — all 21 — voted in favor of Obama.
The vote aligns with campaign contributions to both candidates by Kent voters, who overwhelmingly gave more money to support Obama's campaign than Romney's.
