As ABC News and the AP call the presidential election in favor of Barack Obama, locally, our results are much different than they were four years ago.
Barack Obama crossed the finish line first, taking the win for a second term, but it wasn’t because of Southern Oregon voters. 51% of Jackson County voters chose Mitt Romney for president; 46% of voters chose Barack Obama.
In Josephine County, 60% of voters chose Mitt Romney and 37% of voters chose Barack Obama. A similar story in Klamath County: Mitt Romney received 68% of the votes there and Barack Obama received 29% of the votes.
