GLENWOOD PLANTATION — Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee for president in the 2008 election, received two of three votes from residents in the Aroostook County town in Tuesday’s election.

Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee, had one vote.

Town officials sent election results to the Bangor Daily News before 9 a.m.

All three of Glenwood Plantation’s votes in the U.S. Senate race went to Republican incumbent Susan Collins who is running against Democratic opponent Tom Allen. U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, the Demo-cratic incumbent in the Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, also picked up three votes to none for Re-publican challenger John Frary in the race for Michaud’s seat.

In the race for the Maine House District 9 seat, Republican Henry Joy had two votes to one for Demo-crat Robert Zabierek. Another Republican, Roger Sherman, had two votes in the race for the Maine Sen-ate District 34 seat to one for Democrat Jacqueline Lundeen.

All three Glenwood Plantation voters voted in favor of Question One, which seeks the repeal of the Dirigo Beverage Tax. Two voted yes on Question Two, which asks voters if they favor a casino in Oxford County, and one voted no. All three voted against Question Three, which is a bond for public water sys-tems and wastewater treatment plants.

Glenwood Plantation, which is located along Route 2A about 14 miles north of Macwahoc, had two voters in the 2004 election, both of whom voted for Republican George W. Bush. They also both voted for Republican candidate Brian Hamel in the 2nd Congressional District race, which was won by Michaud.
