How Atwater Village Went This Election

Unmixed Messages
ARMCHAIR ANALYSIS of the Los Angeles Times precinct map reveals how our little slice of northeast LA voted on Election Day 2008. The leanings of Atwater Village:
  • Presidential Race: Obama (solidly)
  • Prop 4 Abortion Notification: No (but just barely)
  • Prop 8 Gay Marriage Ban: No (but just barely)
  • Measure R Transit Sales Tax: Yes (solidly)
No big surprise except this: precincts a few blocks away in the City of Glendale voted Yes to ban gay marriage. Apparently it's more than just the train tracks that separate us.
