DiDomenico, Sal09939577213249423440227701050.6
Flaherty, Tim0259314997011028448323237682949.2

These are now official vote totals.
Sal DiDomenico won this election by a margin of 181 votes.
The Somerville Journal reported that candidate Flaherty filed for a recount of the ballots cast in Everett. This recount was expected to commence on Saturday, Sept 25, but Tim Flaherty has now rescinded his request for a recount.
For comparisons, the results of the April 2010 Special Primary Election may be found at:


  1. They’re still collecting ballot boxes, etc. at Cambridge Election Central at the Senior Center, but the public Internet has gone away, so I’ll be collecting information from home.

    It’s incredible that in Cambridge, a major technology center, the City continues to maintain such undependable and flaky public Internet access.

  2. You are doing a public service publishing these numbers. Thank you!

    I agree with you — it is absurd that all the unofficial count is not available much faster and able to be communicated. why not even have live broadcasting from the count.

    The results by precinct were completed in the two precincts I was watching at about 8:10. I would think that all that could be fed into the election commission, obviously subject to inspection and review.

  3. wow – 53 votes apart with only Saugus and Chelsea yet to report. If those towns break similarly to how they did in the special election this contest could be determined by under 10 votes – crazy!!!

  5. Charlestown and Allston-Brighton are both in Boston, and I only have the combined Boston results at this point.

    I’m ready to conclude that Chelsea elections officials are using an abacus to count their votes.
