Eastern Oklahoma County appears to be home to some of the metro’s most partisan voters, while the John Kilpatrick Turnpike serves as a dividing line between Republicans and Democrats.

Analyzing and mapping the precincts that had the highest number of straight-party ballots in the November election shows that the largest block of straight-party Republican voters is in the Edmond and north OKC suburbs, while most straight-party Democrats live east of the Broadway Extension.

You can explore the precincts with the largest straight-party ballots above with red representing Republicans and blue representing Democrats. The data is from certified elections results from the Oklahoma County Election Board.

The largest straight-part Democratic precincts do not have many straight-party Republicans. However, many of the largest straight-party Republican precincts are also home to large numbers of Democrats. For example, precincts 245, 111 and 121 had more than 400 straight-party Democratic ballots cast. However, none of those precincts had more than 37 Republican straight-party ballots cast.

Many of the largest straight-party Republican precincts had much higher numbers of straight-party Democratic ballots, although Republicans still outnumbered Democrats in those precincts by a wide margin.
