2008 Presidential Results:

John S. McCain       44.17%
Bob Barr                 22.35%
Barack Obama        21.07%
Charles Baldwin     11.14%
Ralph Nader           1.28%

Does anyone know why 3rd party candidates did so well here, with Barr actually beating Obama?

We've been through this a hundred times.  It was a mistake on the part of the County.

Thanks for telling me. I went back several pages, and found no information on it.

This topic has almost never been addressed before, and it wasn't a mistake.  Grant County is very small and it's not surprising that you'd see odd results there.

Thanks Vander.
If I may ask, did Barr spend time campaigning there, hoping he could win at least one count?

No, Blubb is lying. Never listen to him, he's a troll.


It's a mistake. The county has acknowledged it was a mistake. In one precinct, they counted McCain's votes for Barr and Obama's votes for Baldwin. But the state certified the results before the mistake could be rectified, so it's now official.

This was especially annoying because, in addition to being really obvious, plenty of people warned them before certification.

But whatever.

     Really? Maybe we should set up an official "Grant County, North Dakota" topic tracker.

And a fresh spate in 2013 wondering why it swung so hard / where all those third party voters went.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Is it worse than Wyoming? After being there, I shudder to think(lawl band reference) that anything could be worse than that.

I have never been to Wyoming except for Yellowstone, so I can't comment on it.

Grant County mostly consists of lots of tumbleweeds, some farms and ranches, houses that don't appear to be fit for anything other than meth production, ghost towns, and some strange oddities on the road like old rotting grain silos which still stand only because no one has any reason to pay for their demolition or old busted unusable cars laying around for who knows what reason.

However there are far worse parts of North Dakota.
