Mississauga 2010 Election data: HAZEL MCCALLION support and Voter Turnout Sorted by Ward, Polling Station Within Ward

December 18th, 2010  

UPDATE December 19, 2010: We’ve been alerted to a small oversight in our table. In his comment below DeValera wrote. “Nice bit of fact digging. Thank you. You missed one bit of red. 2 0021 Lorne Park SecSchool 2688 795 29.58 786 529 67.30″. With appreciation to DeValera, the “67.30″ for Lorne Park SecSchool polling station is now red.

Today’s entry is a follow-up to our December 13th, 2010 blog, “Mississauga 2010 Election data: Voter Turnout sorted by Polling Station with Wards sorted by Total Turnout” where we cut past the City’s reported voter turnout average of 34.34% and examined the voter turnout for all 11 wards. We then cut through the average voter turnout in each ward and examined voter turnout for all polling stations. We learned a great deal from this exercise.

This data presented today goes one step further. It takes the table presented in our last blog sorted by voter turnout and simply includes the support for Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion.

As regular readers know, we’ve taken the City of Mississauga’s PDF file of the official election results and converted them into a spreadsheet.

The table we offer today is, at least to me, the most important data out of this 2010 Mississauga municipal election—a window into voter turnout.

A reminder that  Ward 10 had the highest voter turnout with 38.46% and Ward 7 the lowest with 28.20% (see column Pct. Turnout). I’ve also highlighted any figures of less than 70% support for McCallion in red. A cursory scan will show considerable red in Ward 5 at several polling stations. We suggest however that rather than this being reflective of lack of support for the Mayor as such, these are artifacts of an ethnic vote supporting their “own”.  Please see the Mayoral results in the City of Mississauga’s PDF file for more details.

Once again for context, Hazel McCallion enjoyed 76.40% support City-wide and received a total of 107,643 ballots cast.

Last to repeat, these data are preliminary and as always, should anyone spot an error we’d appreciate being advised. Many thanks!

ONTARIO MUNICIPALITIES: A MAJOR (unexplored) ROOT OF YOUTH VIOLENCE

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

BACKGROUND (repeated from other blog entries)

On November 17th we reported the most preliminary of preliminary findings in the Blog, “Mississauga News quotes Councillors: VOTERS’ LIST WAS A “MESS”. Why didn’t the City check its own Official Election Results?!” That Blog provided insight into how Hazel McCallion’s 107,643 votes were distributed both by ward and polling stations. These data however don’t necessarily show support for McCallion because it was possible for her to receive the highest number of votes in a polling station where she only got 40-50% of Mayor’s ballots cast—a plurality, in other words.

Our November 18th Blog, “Spreadsheet into percentage of Hazel McCallion’s votes by Mississauga polling stations provides unique insights presented McCallion’s support by polling station based on the simple equation “Votes for Hazel McCallion” divided by “Total Ballots Cast for Mayor”. Example. There are 10 ballets cast for Mayor. 8 were for Hazel McCallion. 8/10 or 80% support at that polling station.

Our November 19th Blog, “Mississauga Ward 5 percentages showing support for incumbents Mayor Hazel McCallion and Councillor Eve Adams by polling stations” focused only on Ward 5 polling station results showing the percentage support for both incumbents Mayor Hazel McCallion and Councillor Eve Adams. We decided to report on Ward 5 first because Malton Community Centre is one of our primary Roots of Youth Violence research sites.

Our November 21st, 2010 Blog, “What effect the “robocall”? Mississauga Ward 6 percentages showing support for Mayor Hazel McCallion, Carolyn Parrish and Ron Starr by polling stations” provided a Carolyn Parrish/Ron Starr breakdown. For context we also did the breakdown for Advanced Polls versus Voting Day to see if Hazel McCallion’s robocall had any effect.

As a result of the news that Mississauga Council had ordered a recount of Ward 1, we decided to post our spreadsheet for that ward next. In the November 24 blog, “Mississauga Councillor Calls for Ward 1 Recount –and STATS for Ward 1 Advanced Polls versus Voting Day”, we confirmed that bottomline, Councillor Corbasson was ahead in the Advanced Polls occurring Ocober 14-15th and lost support on Voting Day. We’re convinced that Jim Tovey’s flyer circulated Saturday, two days before Voting Day had the effect intended.

WHAT WE’VE LEARNED

We realize now that our November 18th Blog, “Spreadsheet into percentage of Hazel McCallion’s votes by Mississauga polling stations provides unique insights did not provide a complete picture. For one thing, we presented no totals. Another, back then we didn’t understand the importance of comparing the results of Advanced Polls vs Voting Day to gauge what effect the Shipp-McCallion team’s “over-sized cheque” flyers might have had.

For context, we provide the actual voter turnout by Ward sorted by highest to lowest. Please see column “Turnout“. Note City-wide voter turnout was 34.34% (* checked against City’s results at www.mississauga.ca).

And to repeat, as always, should anyone spot an error we’d appreciate being advised. Many thanks!
