Presidential election results in Seaford, 2012

Newsday's website published an excellent map of the 2012 presidential results in Nassau and Suffolk counties.  The following analysis of the election districts in Seaford is based on the unofficial totals on that map.  Generally speaking, I used the boundaries of the Seaford post office to decide which ED's were in Seaford. An extra street or two in Wantagh was included, and I omitted the irregularly-shaped wedge of the Seaford post office district north of the Southern State Parkway because that ED included a larger section of Island Trees.  The first column shows the ED number and a hint of its location.  The second column shows the number of votes for Barack Obama, the third column for Mitt Romney.

The total votes cast in Seaford were 7,359.  I have not found the number of eligible voters residing in Seaford, but the resident figure seems to be about 15,200.
Mitt Romney won about 63.5% of the Seaford vote.  Utah, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Idaho gave him higher percents.
Barack Obama won about 36.4% of the Seaford vote.
