Gray, Kwame, Mendelson Win; How Did Your Precinct Vote?

Election day morning at Precinct 16, 15th and R Streets NW: Fenty got 45% of the vote citywide, but 74% in Precinct 16. (Luis Gomez Photos)

Most of the votes are in from yesterday’s DC Primary vote. No surprises: Gray beat Fenty 54% to 45% and Kwame Brown defeated Vincent Orange 55% to 39% with Dorothy Douglas taking 5%. Phil Mendelson easily survived his race for At-Large Council despite fears he might lose to Michael D. Brown due to name confusion. The general election is November 2, but in one-party town, yesterday’s Democratic Primary was the vote that mattered.

In Ward 1 incumbent Jim Graham easily won his Democratic Primary race with 57% of the vote. Challengers Jeff Smith and Bryan Weaver each got 21% of the vote. All 16 precincts in Ward 1 have reported their vote totals. Most of the U Street neighborhood is in Ward 1.

Who did voters in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area support compared to the rest of the city? We broke out the results for 10 precincts in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area. The results are in the table below—you can compare your precinct to the citywide totals. The DC Board of Elections and Ethics (DCBOEE) has the preliminary results online; the easier-to read, interactive site at DCBOEE is also now updated.

Fenty Wins Big Locally

Fenty easily won nine of the 10 selected precincts, getting roughly 70% of the vote, and topping 80% in two Dupont Circle area precincts. Orange ran better in a number of precincts in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area than he did citywide, as did Mendelson.

Citywide Results

Results are for 128 of 143 precincts from the DCBOEE. More than 6,000 provisional and same-day registration ballots are yet to be counted.

  • Mayor: Dem Primary – Fenty 45%, Gray 54%
  • Council Chairman: Democratic Primary – Kwame Brown 55%, Orange 39%, Douglas 5%
  • Council At-Large: Democratic Primary – Michael D. Brown 28%, Mendelson 63%, Ray 9%

Results from 10 Local Precincts

Below are the results from 10 selected precincts in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area for three races in the Democratic Primary: Mayor, At-Large Council and Council Chairman. The address of each precinct is below the table. Some precincts are in more than one neighborhood; DCBOEE has maps of precincts.
