Winslow at the polls<br>

The majority of voters across the state and across the nation chose Republicans over Democrats and third parties in the Nov. 2 election.

In the predominately Democratic city of Winslow, voters disagreed with their fellow Arizonians and Americans on their choice for president. However, Republicans John McCain and Rick Renzi were returned to their congressional seats by Winslow residents.

All results are provided by the Navajo County Elections Office and are unofficial as of Monday. The county had until Tuesday to verify the results, which was after the Winslow Mail went to press.
