Watertown’s results mostly mirrored the overall vote tally during the Sept. 6 State Primary, but there were a couple where local voters bucked the trend.
Like the statewide results, Watertown voters favored Democrat Maura Healey and Republican Geoff Diehl for governor, the GOP’s Leah Allen and the Dem’s Kim Driscoll for lieutenant governor, Democrat Andrea Campbell for Attorney General, and William Galvin, a Dem, for Secretary of State.
In two races, Watertown’s results were different from the overall result. Local voters favored Chris Dempsey for the Democratic nomination for Auditor, while Diana DiZoglio was named the winner.
In the overall race for Governor’s Council District 3, Watertown’s Marilyn Petitto Devaney, the incumbent, holds a small lead over Mara Dolan. As of 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Devaney had a lead of about 1,700 votes with about 98.6 percent of the votes tallied, according to the Boston Globe‘s election results. In Watertown, Dolan had a narrow advantage. Her 2,415 votes accounted for 50.5 percent of the vote, while Devaney received 2,354 votes. There were 11 write-in votes. The local tally comes from the unofficial results provided by the Watertown City Clerk’s Office.
Local members of the legislature — State Sen. Will Brownsberger, and state representatives Steve Owens and John Lawn (all Dems) — ran unopposed. There were no Republicans running.
