How Bronxville Voted in the 2020 Presidential Election

By Staff

Jan. 6, 2021: As we all know, 2020 was an unusual year. With the global Covid-19 pandemic overshadowing our lives, we experienced shutdowns, quarantines, testing, masks, significant loss, remote learning, remote working, virtual exercise, virtual classes, the dedication of essential workers, sports canceled, sports re-started, closed businesses, outdoor dining, zoom birthdays, zoom holidays, zoom everything and unexpected silver linings like incredible kindness and generosity.

In the midst of all this, the 2020 Presidential Election was also unusual, with highly polarized political viewpoints, record early and absentee voting, claims of voter fraud and lawsuits by the Trump campaign, and a drawn-out process to declare a winner. New York certified its 2020 Election results on December 3, 2020. The US Electoral College confirmed Joe Biden as the election winner on December 14, 2020.

So, how did Bronxville vote in 2020?

Bronxville voted overwhelmingly (70%) for the Biden/Harris ticket in 2020. Interestingly, Bronxville voters cast nearly the same number of votes for Trump/Pence in 2020 (1,117) as they did in 2016 (1,119). Voter turnout in Bronxville in 2020 was up 19% from 2016.

This was only the third time in the past 100 years that Bronxville voters cast more votes for the Democratic candidate for President than the Republican candidate. The first time was for Obama in 2008. The second was for Hillary Clinton in 2016. In all the other years, a majority of Bronxville voters voted for the Republican candidate.

Note:  An asterisk, national winner; bold names, Bronxville winner.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
