Thanks a lot, this is really cool. For Alameda do you have data for Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Fremont and Oakland? Thanks.

As for CCC, Obama won Danville by double digits. Wow. How about Alamo and Blackhawk? And Lamorinda voting like Martinez and Concord should make republicans cry.

I'll check 'em soon.

Alamo, Blackhawk and Soquel are all CDPs, not municipalities.  Since none of them are surrounded by incorporated areas, I doubt the precinct boundaries perfectly fit the CDPs.  I'll also have to find a map, obviously, but I'll figure it out.

I think I already checked Blackhawk, but I don't remember what it was.

Alameda County precinct results are here.  And on page 37 are the summary of the subtotals:

Oh, neat.  I'd been adding things up manually Sad  Thanks, Torie.

To-do list: Blackhawk CDP (Contra Costa); Alamo CDP and American Canyon (Napa); Santa Cruz, Soquel CDP and Watsonville (Santa Cruz).

Short answer:
Alamo: Obama 50.2%, McCain 47.9%
Blackhawk: About Obama +9
Diablo: About Obama +3

American Canyon: Napa County sucks.

The following don't include write-ins.
Capitola: Obama 77.6%, McCain 19.9%
Santa Cruz: Obama 86.6%, McCain 10.8%
Scotts Valley: Obama 63.7%, McCain 34.3%
Watsonville: Obama 80.5%, McCain 17.9%
Unincorporated Santa Cruz County: Obama 74.4%, McCain 23.1%

Assuming SCC's precinct maps are up-to-date, Soquel was about Obama 78.1%, McCain 19.3%.

Long answer:
Blackhawk is tough.  It's easy enough to identify the Blackhawk Country Club precincts.  The developments outside are more of an issue.  Blackhawk Country Club voted 55-44 McCain.  Blackhawk proper (excluding the country club) voted about 58-40 Obama.  Overall, I think Obama probably carried Blackhawk something like 54%-55% to 44%-45%.  Depends on how many development precincts I missed.

Diablo is the same deal, but even worse.  It's slightly more Republican all-around.  My guess is that it voted Obama by a few points overall, probably something like Obama 49%-51% to McCain 47%-49%.  Also depends on how you define Diablo vs. Danville.

The county defines Alamo precincts as being 332-340.  Collectively, Obama carried these precincts 50.2% to 47.9%.

Napa County (American Canyon) has results up on their web site, but the file is a 404.

"Soquel CDP" is defined as Santa Cruz County precincts 1040, 1041, 1061, 1062 and 2048.

To-do list: Blackhawk CDP (Contra Costa); Alamo CDP and American Canyon (Napa); Santa Cruz, Soquel CDP and Watsonville (Santa Cruz).

Some California county registrars (e.g., Orange, Alameda, Contra Costa) have the full monty data by precinct on their websites with subtotals by every kind of political subdivision imaginable, and other counties (e.g. Solano) do not.

Thanks a lot for the link Torie.

Although it is a little surprising that Blackhawk was more democratic than Alamo or Diablo, I suppose all those new developments made the difference. I was under the impression they were under the city of Danville. The family friends I know living there send their kids to Danville schools so I just assumed that. The country club results weren't too surprising. Probably similar results at Castlewood and Ruby hills...should go check that out.

Ruby hills- 52-45 Mccain
Castlewood- 54-44 Mccain
In 2004 Ruby Hills was the most republican precinct in Alameda county but this time it looks like it is Castlewood( more old people and money than Ruby hills). Actually it might be the mass of red at the east of the county but I feel the registrar might be combining precincts there.

Also the supplement to the statement of vote has just been put out by the Secretary of State. You can find results for cities, congressional districts, assembly districts, etc within counties.
