Like voting trends throughout southern California, less Glendora voters cast their ballots on Election Day than in 2008.
Just 58.09 percent of registered voters made it to the polls on Election Day, down from 83.73 percent in 2008. Out of the 30,577 registered voters in Glendora, 17,761 votes were cast.
In Los Angeles County 49.8 percent of registered voters cast heir ballots Tuesday, compared to 76.8 percent in 2008, according to the Los Angeles County Clerk’s Office.
"This is one of those rare elections in which turnout in every state in the nation went down," Curtis Gans, director of American University's Center for the Study of the American Electorate, told NBC News.
However, as in 2008, Glendora continued to vote Republican, with nearly 10,000 Glendora votes going to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The re-elected Democratic Barack Obama earned just over 7,000 votes in Glendora.
While Glendora will see four new Democratic representatives in the House and Senate, the majority of the city’s voters went with Republican candidates.
While incumbent Judy Chu took a decisive victory in the 27th Congressional District, Jack Orswell took the majority of Glendora votes. David Miller narrowly took the lead in Glendora, although eventually losing the 32nd Congressional seat to Democratic candidate Grace Napolitano.
Republican Gil Gonzales took a commanding lead in Glendora for the 25th Senatorial seat over Democratic incumbent Carol Liu, although Gonzales received fewer votes overall.
48th Assembly candidate Joe Gardner also took the majority of Glendora votes over opponent Roger Hernandez, although the embattled Democratic incumbent eventually won the majority of votes in the newly drawn district.
Glendora also voted ‘No on Prop. 30,’ Browns Tax Increase Initiative, a measure that passed in statewide voting.
