San Juan County Democrats Vote Overwhelmingly for Bernie
By David Byrne, Talking Heads, March 26, 2015
San Juan County (Washington) Democrats met today in 18 individual precinct caucuses on seven islands, with 2,039 party faithful in attendance. Bernie received 1,580 votes, or 77.5 % of the total, with Hillary receiving 446, or 21.9%. It will be interesting to see if any other county in the country votes as strongly for Bernie as ours.
With our county’s 105 delegates at stake, Bernie received 79 delegates, with 25 going to Hillary supporters. There was one unallocated delegate.
The 104 delegates elected today will attend the San Juan County Democratic Convention on May 1. The time and location of the convention will be announced soon.
Additional information, including a precinct by precinct breakdown, will be posted on Islanders’ Voice on Monday.
Thanks to all of you who attended and showed the other party what to expect from us in November no matter who is the final Democrat candidate for POTUS.
And thanks to all of the volunteers who made today’s caucuses a resounding success in spite of the overflow turnout, probably a record for our county.
