How Did Burlington Vote in the Election?

A look at how Burlington voted race-by-race yesterday.

Burlington residents came out in force to vote in yesterday's election. According to Town Clerk Amy Warfield a total of 13,409, or 85 percent, of the total 15,149 eligible voters. 

The town did not go with any party. President Barack Obama took the majority of Burlington votes but the ticket was split for the senate race and Scott Brown beat out Elizabeth Warren in town. Warren did end up carrying the state.

In the 21st Middlesex District State Representative race, Burlington did give the majority to home-town candidate Walter Zenkin over Bedford's Ken Gordon, but not by a big majority. Zenkin was ultimately defeated by Gordon when Bedford weighed in on the race.

Burlington voters also supported Fourth Middlesex District State Sen. Ken Donnelly, joining the effort to re-elect him for a new term.

On the ballot questions Burlington came out in favor of right to repair and medical marijuana but against assisted suicide.

Well, at least Burlington is a 'little' less party partisan.

I'm happy to see that I voted the same as most of the residents of the town. Yes Burlington seems more bipartisan.

Let us hope that it gets more that way ! This State has gone to the point of ridiculous! How anyone could have voted for John Tierney again just prove ignorance.
