Who loves the library most?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 6:03 AM

As expected, the final tally for the Little Rock library tax vote was overwhelmingly supportive — 4,548 to 699. That put the percentages at 86.7 to 13.3.

Not much to mine from precinct results on that outcome. But, believe it or not, every single precinct did not vote for the tax. I also was interested in the most tax-friendly among the city's precincts.

I was happy to see that the Free State of Hillcrest was again the most tax-friendly.

My precinct, 109 at Pulaski Heights Presbyterian, did what you'd expect from a precinct that supports every tax, Barack Obama, Joyce Elliott, abortion rights and gay adoption rights. We went 314-11, or 96.6 percent for the tax. That was exceeded by neighboring 112, which delves down into Capitol View and also votes at Pulaski Heights Presbyterian, with a 41-1 vote (who was that sorehead?). Best of all was Precinct 98, at Second Baptist Church downtown, which went 18-0 for the tax.

Two precincts actually voted against the tax, 130 in College Station, where the vote was 1-4, and 83 at Iglesia Bautista on Col. Glenn, which went 4-9 against the tax.

Get all your precincts here. (The two precincts that vote at the Fire Station in the Heights, another reliable good government outpost, went, together, 329-26, for the tax.
