Southborough vote reflects wider results

by beth on November 7, 2018

The votes are in from the 2018 midterms. Around the country, media focus is on seats that flipped (or didn’t despite strong challenges) and too close to call races. But in our district and statewide seats, the winners were generally the expected incumbents. And Southborough voters went with the tide, if not a completely blue wave. (The Governor’s office was the one non-Democratic win.)

Ballot Questions were also consistent with state results: No, Yes, Yes.

Voter turnout was 69.24% in town. That’s up more than 9% from the last mid-terms, but more than 13% short of the 2016 Presidential race.

Below are the Southborough “unofficial” results. In each case, the outcome is the same as the total state/district outcome.*

*Note: I don’t have % for each result across the state/district so I can’t say if there was stronger/weaker support for any candidate or position in town then elsewhere. I just know that the outcome is consistent.
