Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y In this county where Roosevelt ran second ahead of Taft, the margins given are those between Wilson and Roosevelt.
  2. ^ a b In this county where Debs ran second ahead of Taft and of Roosevelt, the margin given is that between Wilson and Debs.
  3. ^ a b Different sources reverse the Republican vote totals for Sebastian and Searcy Counties.
    In contrast to Deve Leip’s Atlas, Géoelections has 389 Taft votes in Searcy County and 514 in Sebastian County, which would have given Searcy County to Wilson and the Democratic Party
