See which Sonoma County neighborhoods voted for Donald Trump

Once the dust settled from last year's presidential election, the Los Angeles Times released a map of how every precinct in California voted. Voter data on Sonoma County was added this month.

The map breaks down every precinct in California and color codes each according to votes per square mile and its majority-favored political party. For example, those in dark blue had higher voter turnout and favored Hillary Clinton, while those in light red had a smaller voter turnout but favored Donald Trump.

In the 2016 general election, there were 233,303 votes cast in Sonoma County. Of those, 51,408 votes, or 22 percent of the ballots cast, went for Trump.

Clinton earned 68 percent of the vote, with 160,435 ballots cast, and won Sonoma County along with the rest of California. So when looking up Sonoma County, one will see the typical blue bubble that is traced by the county lines. However, looking a little deeper can reveal some interesting details.

Based on votes per square mile, Santa Rosa had the most votes cast for Trump in Sonoma County. As Santa Rosa is the most populous city in the county, this shouldn't come as a surprise.

Breaking that down even further, Trump won by just seven votes in one of the largest precincts in Santa Rosa. Located on Saint Andrews Drive near Fountaingrove Golf Club in northeastern Santa Rosa, this precinct had a total of just 51 votes cast.

The adjacent precinct, off Riebli Road near Winter Brook Lane, recorded a total of 48 votes cast.

In other, less populated areas where Trump won, including Glen Ellen and Guerneville precincts, there were fewer than 10 votes recorded.

Data was not shown in precincts with fewer than five voters in order to protect the privacy of the residents.

It might be intriguing to see how your neighborhood voted, but don't be surprised if all you see is blue. Search your address or county on the LA Times website here.
