We delve into election results to see how Fairlawn and Bath residents voted on the presidential, senate and other races down the ballot.
Barack Obama won the national vote and he won in Ohio. He also won in Fairlawn, according to unofficial vote totals from the Summit County Board of Elections.

While Summit County is a Democratic stronghold, Republicans needed to perform well in the suburbs to shave off votes from the president's total. However, Romney's votes in Fairlawn and Bath were not enough to help him. Here's a breakdown of how each of the precincts voted for president.

This post will be updated as more information from the visits …
