Post image for Primary results: Devaney to keep her seat

The state primary didn’t draw many voters yesterday. Voter turnout was a mere 3.98% in Southborough.

But there wasn’t much up for grabs here. Only one position was contested, and only on one ballot – the Democratic nominee for Councillor of the Third District.

Councillor Marilyn M. Petitto Devaney captured 41% of the vote on Southborough’s democratic ballots. (That’s 91 votes.) The remainder was split between William Bishop Humphrey (30%), Peter Georgiou (21%), and blanks (8%).

The Boston Globe confirms Devaney won renomination. She will be uncontested in the general election.
