Walpole 2016 primary results

March 3, 2016

Here are the precinct-by-precinct primary results for Tuesday’s presidential election, which saw 48.5 percent voter turnout in Walpole.

Businessman Donald Trump and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders won Walpole in their respective primaries.

Sanders’ opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, did find favor in four of eight precincts, winning Precincts 4, 6, 7, and 8. Trump won all eight precincts handily.

Trump tallied 1,807 votes town-wide, for 45 percent of the vote, followed by Florida senator Marco Rubio with 847 votes and Ohio governor John Kasich with 810 votes. Texas senator Ted Cruz had a small, but loyal following, with 340 votes town-wide.

Walpole’s Maura Harding Clow and Dominick Ianno won Walpole in their races for Republican State Committee. Clow lost the race overall to incumbent Committeewoman Angela Davis, while Ianno defeated Attleboro’s Jeff Bailey overall. Clow’s strong showing in Walpole puts her in good position to run for town office. Her husband, Harry Clow, already serves as a Town Meeting Representative.

Walpole Selectman Jim Stanton won the most votes in an uncontested race for a seat on the Republican Town Committee, securing 2,031 votes town-wide. This is a strong sign for his campaign, as he will be on the ballot for re-election to Selectman in June.

Another Selectman candidate, Thomas J. Brown, won 1,714 votes, finishing behind four other candidates.

In the uncontested races for Democratic Town Committee, State Senator James Timilty won the most votes, with 2,655 town-wide.
