Vote here follows trends in state

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — The results may have President Barack Obama winning a second term after Tuesday’s election, but voters in Garvin County agreed with all other counties in Oklahoma by supporting the Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

 Obama earned another four-year term in the White House when he claimed 303 electoral votes from the more than 60.3 million popular votes he received.

Overall Romney collected 206 electoral votes and around 57.5 million votes.

The story was different in Oklahoma as Romney won every single county in the state.

Here in Garvin County the Republican candidate finished with 6,922 votes, or 73 percent, while Obama received 2,556 votes.

Voters also agreed with others in the state by supporting six state questions that all passed.

The vote count for the questions here in Garvin County were:

• 6,367-2,738 in favor of SQ 758, which lowers the cap on property value increases for owner occupied homes and agricultural land.

• 5,603-3,421 in favor of SQ 759, which does not allow affirmative action programs in state hiring, contracting and education programs.

• 5,124-3,907 in favor of SQ 762, which removes the governor from the parole process for some nonviolent offenders.

• 5,103-3,841 in favor of SQ 764, which allows the Oklahoma Water Resources Board to issue up to $300 million in bonds to pay for water resource and sewage treatment programs.

• 5,603-3,413 in favor of SQ 765, which creates a new department to administer and carry out laws to provide for the care of the aged and the needy.

• 6,281-2,904 in favor of SQ 766, which makes all intangible property exempt from taxes.

In the race for the District 4 office in the U.S. House, Republican incumbent Tom Cole won another term. In Garvin County he collected 72 percent of the vote over Democrat Donna Marie Bebo and Independent R.J. Harris.

Democrat incumbent Susan Paddack easily picked up another term in the state Senate District 13 seat. She received 72.3 percent of the vote in Garvin County.

Republican Corey Brooks won the Senate District 43 race over Democrat Mike Fullerton. In this county Brooks picked up 71.7 percent of the vote.

Lisa Billy won another term in the state House District 42 seat over challenger Steven Vines. Billy received 78.3 percent support here.

Patrick Ownbey won the House District 48 race by defeating Democrat Brian Spencer. In Garvin County Ownbey received 61.1 percent of the vote.

Bobby Cleveland won the race for the House District 20 seat over Matt Branstetter. Cleveland picked up 59.8 percent of the Garvin County vote.
