Mike McMahon, data guru, has done it again.  He did the hard work of breaking out where and which neighborhoods voted for which City Council candidates.  As he pointed out in this comment Malia Vella’s West End get out the vote pulled her in the lead over Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft.

Malia Vella won every single West End precinct:


West Ender Tony Daysog didn’t fare that well, but — as expected — did pretty well on Bay Farm, but that wasn’t enough since he still came up short.

But in case you wanted to know how your neighborhood voted, I added the polling places to the list so you can sort of tell, based on the polling place, how your neighborhood voted.  If you still can’t figure it out, you can visit this site and click through the maps to locate your immediate ‘hood.


In case you were wondering, my neighborhood went (1) Malia Vella, (2) Lena Tam, (3) Tony Daysog, (4) Marilyn Ezzy-Ashcraft, (5) Jennifer Roloff.  Must have been quite a few bullet votes for Malia Vella since everyone else was in approximately the same  253 – 266 range whereas Malia Vella had 328 votes.



  1. Fascinating stuff. Thank you.

  2. Is there precinct-by-precinct data for other races?

  3. Where can we find what percentage of voters actually voted in the last election, in Alameda or in Alameda County? I’ve looked on the registrar of Voters’ site and can’t find that stat.

  4. Too bad we don’t limit voting to only property owners. You know, the people who actually care about the community and have a stake in the outcomes?

    • I’ve always been in favor limiting to net payers of taxes.

      • In case it isn’t clear, this policy is how you legally justify slave labor.

        • Upside: It neatly excludes Jack from the voting rolls

  5. Thanks MP! 75% voter turnout in Alameda County is much higher than I expected.
