Super Tuesday Results

The results are in and you can review them here. In Massachusetts, with 98% of the precincts reporting in, results are pretty much certain and all that’s left is the final delegate count.

The Democratic spread shows Clinton out front at 56% (54 delegates), Obama at 41% (37 delegates), and Edwards with 2%. For the Republicans, Romney wins it with 51% (21 delegates), trailed by McCain with 41% (17 delegates), followed by Huckabee, Paul, and Giuliani with 4%, 3%, and 1% respectively.

Remember, until 100% of all precincts report in these numbers could change, but at 98% the change would be pretty slight.

Super Tuesday

Today was Super Tuesday and my first time voting in Massachusetts. My polling place is on the route I take daily on the way to the train. Let me tell you, it was a different experience from those I’ve had before.

I was surprised, and a bit disappointed, to find the place pretty empty. I was really hoping it’d be packed with voters, but perhaps that had something to do with the weather we had today. With the poor weather found in many of the states voting today, I really wonder what kind of effect it had on the turnout and results.

Voting was very much in and out today and uneventful. In no more than ten minutes I got in, got my I Voted Today sticker, and got out. How was your experience?
