My precinct returns

Well, I called it wrong with respect to Obama support in my District of Columbia precinct, the 16th.

1270 people voted, a 45.45% turnout.

  • Of these, 1201 voted in the Democratic primary. Yes, D.C. is a tad lopsided politically.
  • Barack Obama got 703, or 58.53%. That’s close to the ward-wide figure of 62.46%
  • Hillary Clinton got 480, or 39.97%, and that’s much higher than I imagined.
  • 65 voted Republican; John McCain got 43 of these.
  • 4 voted Statehood Green; half going to a certain former Georgia representative, but who cares?
  • Full details here.
