As I wrote last night, Dallas County's new elections website is a marked improvement over versions past -- from precinct maps to mail-ins breakdowns, it contains all the details a wonk could want. So, then. After the jump a few of the more relevant color-by-numbers, including looks at the Rick Perry-Bill White numbers; the Eddie Bernice Johnson-Stephen Broden race, and those involving the Dallas County District Attorney and Dallas County Judge. (Also, a look at how Dallas voted on the beer-and-wine issue.) But we begin with the one at left: a breakdown of straight-ticket votes, with 152,377 going Dem (in blue, natch) and 132,079 casting for the GOP. Also: 1,372 were straight-ticket Libertarians; 350, all-Green.
