Early Results of the WA Democratic Presidential Primary

The first round of results is in for the Washington Democratic Presidential Primary.

Ballot boxes closed at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 10. As of 9:30 p.m., Sen. Bernie Sanders has a very slim statewide lead over Sen. Joe Biden:

  • Bernie Sanders:   32.71% (335,498 votes)
  • Joe Biden:             32.51% (333,414 votes)

Our local counties are split between the two.

Elizabeth Warren received 12.29% of the statewide vote so far. She dropped out of the race following disappointing finishes in primary contests on March 3, “Super Tuesday.”

On the Republican side, President Trump has 98.48% of the vote so far (523,409 votes). Although there was a write-in option, the president is running virtually unopposed for the Republican Party nomination.
