WOW ... What a great Turnout in Charlestown...In the last couple of weeks since the Mayor got involved I seen more signs and more activity by the Warren Campaign. I am sure and hope those folks gave a big Thank You to Danielle Valle Fitzgerald, Scott Moses, Patrick Rossi and Doug MacDonald. Just in precinct 2 they pulled out around a 400 vote lead alone i think it was about an 800 vote victory. Great job to all who stuck it out that day i am sure it got crazy but to work hard all day on election day payed off for you.... Congrats

Dave, What were the Brown-Warren numbers in West Roxbury? Brown campaigned hard here even making a stop here at Holy Name on Election Day. No doubt the high turnout hurt Brown & at least in Boston very little ticket splitting...78% of Boston voters voted for Obama & 73% voted for Warren

We're working on getting the local breakdown by neighborhood ward/precincts. We'll definitely publish those numbers as they become available!

As the Elizabeth Warren Campaign's Charlestown Coodinator, I would like to thank every volunteer for their consistent, constant hard work. Our team was made up of people from corner of this neighborhood we all love to call home. To the voters who waited in long lines, patiently and with purpose, the Warren team thanks you from the bottom of our collective heart. As you can see, your votes truly mattered. YOU re-elected our president and YOU elected the first woman to the United States Senate from Massachusetts. It has been a privilege to work with all of you.

Impressive especially considering that South Boston went for Brown, who took every precenct but the Fort Point-Waterfront District. Well done. No quit in the above mentioned folks, total get out the vote operations.
