However, as you can see from the voting map on the page, 68 percent of precincts voted against fluoridation including most of the places where professors live.
Unless one lives on the very outskirts of town in the East or North of Bellingham, one's precinct almost certainly voted against fluoridation.
Although these are fine areas, they are not know for a concentration of PhDs. The only apparent voting pattern is that the newer folks to Bellingham who arrived in the last 5 - 10 years voted for fluoride in a higher percent than the rest of the city.
There are only a few other precincts that supported fluoridation. Overall, two out of three Bellingham precincts rejected it.
Because few professors live in the East or North of Bellingham, the precincts they live in very likely voted against fluoridation. As an example, all of the Columbia/Eldridge neighborhood voted heavily against fluoridation as did 80 percent of the precincts on the edge of Bellingham Bay.
