On Election Day 2012, Mitt Romney drew 54 percent of the Gwinnett County vote by winning 98 of the county’s 156 precincts.
According to unofficial results available on the Georgia Secretary of State website, Romney finished with 159,563 votes, compared to 131,879 for President Barack Obama, who won re-election nationwide.
Romney dominated the vote in the county from Peachtree Corners up the Chattahoochee River to Buford, across the northern part of Gwinnett to Dacula and through a swath mostly north of U.S 78 between Snellville and Lilburn.

President Obama, on the other hand, did well in between Norcross and Lilburn, up I-85 to the northern areas of Lawrenceville, and the southern corner of the county south of U.S. 78.
Romney’s biggest wins came in the Duncans A (12 Stone Church), C (Hamilton Mill UMC) and D (Hamilton Mill Christian Church) precincts, all in the Dacula area, by taking 80, 79 and 79 percent of those votes, respectively.
President Obama’s biggest margin was at the Martins E (Ferguson Elementary School) precinct, a new site bordering I-85 in unincorporated Duluth, where he won 87.1 percent. The President also scored better than 80 percent at Pinckneyville N (Landmark Church) and Pinckneyville Q (Beaver Ruin Baptist Church).
The two closest precincts were Pinckneyville T (First Chinese Baptist Church, Duluth), where Romney won 746 to 730 (Libertarian Gary Johnson had 29 votes), and Martins I (Amazing Grace Lutheran, Lawrenceville), where Obama won 1,413 to 1,387 (Johnson also had 29).
