As the state goes, so goes the county - sometimes. A total of 2,987,451, or 64 percent, of registered voters statewide and around 105,700, or 58.3 percent, of registered voters in Mohave County cast a ballot on Tuesday.

In Tuesday's election Mohave County voters agreed with statewide voters on all but two items, who they wanted to serve as commissioners on the Arizona Corporation Commission and Proposition 101, a choice in health care.

Statewide voters elected Sandra Kennedy at 18 percent, Paul Newman at 16 percent and Bob Stump at 16 percent as Corporation commissioners. Mohave county voters cast their votes for Stump with 18 percent, Republican Marian McClure with 17 percent and Newman at 17 percent.

On Proposition 101, which if approved would give residents the right to choose their own health care plans, the state tally is still too close to call, with 50 percent of voters casting their vote in favor of it, and 50 percent voting against it.

Mohave County voters were a little more decisive. Around 56 percent of Mohave County voters voted in favor of it, while 44 percent voted against it.

In the presidential race, 33 percent of Mohave County voters cast their vote for Barack Obama, while 65 percent favored John McCain. Statewide, 45 percent of voters chose Obama, 54 percent McCain.

For U.S. District 2 representative, state voters elected Trent Franks by 59 percent of the vote. Mohave County voters elected him by 63 percent. State and Mohave County voters elected Ron Gould as state senator for District 3 with 63 percent of the vote.

State and Mohave County voters also agreed on Doris Goodale, with 37 percent of the vote and Nancy McLain with 38 percent of the vote for state representatives for District 3.

It looks as if state legislators will not be getting a raise this year, with Mohave County voters less willing than state voters to fork over the extra dough.

Both statewide and Mohave County voters voted down raising the salaries, around 78 percent of Mohave County voters and 65 percent of voters statewide.

Mohave County voters also followed the majority of the state voters on the propositions on this year's ballot.

On Prop. 100, the protect our homes proposition, Mohave County voters approved it with 86 percent of the vote. Statewide voters approved it with 77 percent of the vote.

On Prop. 102, the marriage act, 68 percent of Mohave County voters voted in favor of it. Statewide, 57 percent of voters approved it.

Neither Mohave County nor statewide voters thought that Prop. 105, majority rules, was a good idea.

Around 59 percent of Mohave County voters voted against it, while 66 percent of voters statewide voted against it.

Voters also didn't approve of extending payday loans. Around 56 percent of Mohave County and 60 percent of statewide voters voted against it.

Voters also voted against the Homeowner's Bill of Rights. Around 78 percent of statewide voters and 80 percent of Mohave County voters cast ballots against it.

Putting the word (fact) after a fact doesn't make it so. Facts are determined by truth, not by your fear.

The presidential choice may not have been the same for all of us, but there is a reason that Obama got ot where he is. As the United States of America, I think that we need to be just that.. UNITED.. There have been some good and some not so good results come out of every presidency, but we should at least give our new president a chance to make the difference he promised. If nothing else at least we will not be fighing a war that we shouldn't and OUR troops and family members will be able to come home. That in itself is a triumphant achievement.
