Today, January 19, Washington DC Democrats had delegate selection caucuses. These votes were for delegate candidates only, to rank various individuals running for Delegate. Clinton supporters voted in two caucuses (divided by Wards) to elect Clinton delegates. Obama supporters voted in two caucuses to elect Obama delegates, etc. Basically, the vote was about which individuals will be part of the DC delegation to the Denver Convention. The vote had no effect on the final delegate allocation but it did measure who was willing to come out to one location for the entire city on a winter day.
The results were, in terms of the number of caucus participants:
Sen. Barack Obama -- 519 votes
Sen. Hillary Clinton -- 271 votes
There were a small amount of votes for Edwards, Kucinich & uncommitted -- those will be reported on an official tally to be certified by the DC Board of Elections & Ethics on Tuesday.
