Final results from the Champaign County Clerk's office, 100% of precincts reporting:
Withdraw US Troops and Bases from Iraq ("orderly and rapid"):
Impeach Bush/Cheney for War, Torture, Illegal Surveillance:
In many Republican precincts in Champaign - as judged by the vote in the Secretary of State's race - the majority voted in favor of withdrawal from Iraq. In 32 of Champaign's 38 precincts and in 22 of Urbana's 23 precincts a majority voted in favor of withdrawal.
As we were tallying the votes at the County building, Republican Rep. Tim Johnson gave a press conference on his victory in the Congressional election. He acknowledged that the US position in Iraq was a "quagmire" and that Americans would not tolerate the status quo for another two years.
In the spring the Urbana City Council passed a resolution in favor of withdrawal. At the time, peace activists claimed that the council was reflecting majority sentiment in Urbana. This completes the argument.
Other Illinois cities voted to withdraw from Iraq:
Downers Grove-Yes 55%
Oak Park 75%
