Strange Voting Trends in Polygamist Community

Most didn't vote in U.S. presidential race

Associated Press/February 18, 2013

Phoenix - A new analysis shows bizarre voting trends in the polygamist community of Colorado City.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports a precinct-level vote analysis shows that hundreds of Colorado City voters didn't cast a vote the U.S. presidential race, the Arizona Senate race and the Mohave County attorney, sheriff and school superintendent's races. But they did vote in the U.S. Senate race, the U.S. House of Representatives race, the Arizona House of Representatives race and the Mohave County treasurer, recorder and assessor races.

In races where the bloc of sporadic voters did participate, they topped the participation rate among all precincts in the county.

The isolated area straddles the Arizona-Utah border, and is home to the highly publicized Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints community.
