Southborough’s Primary Results

The “unofficial” primary results from the Town’s Clerk’s office show Southborough voters aligned with voters across the state. Here are the highlights and results.

Yesterday, less than 15% of registered Southborough voters cast ballots in the state’s primary. 99.6% of voters were eligible to participate in the primary, since less than 4% are enrolled in 3rd parties.

Though turnout was low, it was on par with the state. (I saw averages reported at about 16% with many towns around 15%.)

The only outlier in town results was a draw in the highly contested race for Governor. Democrat Martha Coakley won the state nomination by 6%. In Southborough, Coakley tied opponent Steve Grossman with 257 votes each.

Ballots cast were 699 for the Democratic primary and 342 for the Republican primary. Those figures represent 43% of registered Democrats and 27% of registered Republicans in town.

Below I included the results for the contested races:
