Lynch Won West Roxbury - Ward-by-Ward Breakdown of U.S. Senate Primary

Republican Gabriel Gomez will face Democrat U.S. Rep Ed Markey on June 25 to choose who will be Massachusetts' junior senator.


Despite losing the Democratic U.S. Senate primary on Tuesday, Steven Lynch took home more votes in West Roxbury than winner and fellow U.S. Rep. Ed Markey.

In total, West Roxbury's wards voted for Lynch 3,652 to Markey's 2,301, according to unofficial results from the City of Boston's Elections Department. Please see attached screen shots.

Markey will face Republican Gabriel Gomez in a June 25th special election to replace John Kerry, who became the U.S. Secretary of State. 

Gomez took home more votes in West Roxbury 382 to Michael Sullivan's 298, followed by state Rep. Dan Winslow's 90.

But in the June 25 election, voters can choose to vote for any party's candidate, blank vote or do a write-in, so Gomez could grab more votes similar to how former U.S Senator Scott Brown did in West Roxbury.

West Roxbury consists of precincts 3-7 and 10-20 in Ward 20. Roslindale consists of three wards, precincts 7, 9-11, 22 in Ward 18; precincts 10-11, 13 in Ward 19; and precincts 1-2, 8-9 in Ward 20.
