Precinct-by-precinct results from Tuesday's primary are available (UPDATED)

UPDATED, Aug. 27, 2010 -- In response to a note from a reader, the link to the results has been corrected.

Want to know how your precinct voted in Tuesday's primary elections?

Well, the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections Office today posted 361 pages of precinct-by-precinct results that reveal exactly how the votes broke down.

For instance, reporter Tim Wolfrum discovered this nugget on Page 304 of the report:

On Election Day, Robin DiSabatino received only 4 more votes than Norm Luppino in the race for the Republican nomination for the District 4 seat on the Manatee County Commission, and one fewer than Luppino among voters who went to the polls before Tuesday.

However, Absentee voters -- who cast more than 28 percent of the ballots in the race preferred DiSabatino by an almost 5 to 3 margin, providing almost all of her 262-vote margin of victory.

Another curiosity about the commissioner race: Among early voters, only 2 votes separated Luppino from third-place finisher Tim Norwood. Luppino received 87 early votes, DiSabatino, 86, and Norwood, 85.
