The results are in: Southborough backs Obama, Brown, Dykema

Nearly 83% of Southborough voters hit the polls today and by a slim margin backed President Barack Obama. By a wider margin, the Southborough electorate favored Scott Brown in the Senate race, and incumbent Carolyn Dykema in what was a heated battle for representative of the 8th Middlesex District.

I’ll update the results throughout the evening, so check back.
