Bernie Sanders was the landslide winner in all precincts in San Juan County in the precinct caucuses on March 26. See below how your precinct and island compared to others in our county. And it is important to note that we had 2,039 attendees last Saturday compared to 75 at the recent Republican caucus in Friday Harbor. Could that poor turnout have anything to do with the quality of the Republican candidates?
Whoever is your preferred candidate, we need to unite behind the winner of the Democratic nomination in July to help prevent Trump or Cruz from increasing our country’s inequality even further, building a wall along the Mexican border, patrolling minority neighborhoods, shutting down Planned Parenthood, further eroding voter rights, and imposing his religious beliefs.
Report by David Dehlendorf, Chair, San Juan County Democrats, March 30, 2016
Thanks to all of you who attended and voted at the San Juan County Democratic Presidential Primary Presidential Caucuses on Saturday on San Juan, Orcas, Lopez, Shaw, Waldron, and Decatur islands. And thanks to the many volunteers who made the event possible.
Approximately 2,040 people voted at these caucuses, casting 1,580 votes, or 77.5%, in favor of Bernie Sanders, and 21.9% in favor of Hillary Clinton. In addition, 79 delegates for Bernie were elected to San Juan County Convention on May 1, with 25 elected for Hillary.
Here is the breakdown by precinct and island. The percentages of votes for each candidate in some precincts do not add up to 100% because of undecided voters.
