Slow Day at the Polls

According to NPR this morning, the Republicans were hoping for a strong turnout in the five primaries in the Northeast today--New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Delaware--but if the action at St. Mary's Academy is any indication, their hopes weren't realized. In the First Ward, which has 37 registered Republicans, only 1 voter showed up; in the Second Ward, which has 73 registered Republicans, only 4 voters came out; and in the Third Ward, where there are 106 registered Republicans, only 13 came to the polls.  


  1. The Fifth ward had a turnout of 30.

  2. All we're missing now is the number of voters who turned out in the Fourth Ward. At about 6 o'clock, I'm told, the number was 4. Does anyone know what the final count for that ward was?
