  2. ^ a b c d e f g In this county where Taft did run second ahead of Roosevelt, the margin given is that between Wilson and Taft.
  3. ^ a b c d In this county where Debs ran second ahead of both Roosevelt and Taft, the margin given is that between Wilson and Debs.
  4. ^ For the Roosevelt ticket only, there are differences between the Géoelections/Edgar Eugene Robinson figure and that from Dave Leip’s atlas, with the former used only for the county table.
