Few Woonsocket Voters Pick Democratic Candidates

About 3,000 voters decide primary candidates.


Just 14.92 percent of eligible voters have named Stephen Casey (Dist. 50), Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Dist. 49) and Sen. Marc Cote (D-Dist. 24) Woonsocket's Democratic candidates.

Assuming mail-in ballots don't sway any of the races, Casey and Cote will run unopposed Nov. 6. Baldelli-Hunt will run against Michael E. Moniz. 

Woonsocket voters also backed Congressional candidate David Cicilline in the primary with 2,080 votes. Anthony Gemma and Christopher Young won 931 and 315 votes, respectively. Cicilline, who won the state-wide primary vote as well, will face Republican Brendan Doherty Nov. 6 for the First Congressional District.

Here's a chart of the votes for the local primary races by precinct from the unofficial results on RI Secretary of State's website

Pubic?! What, are we in fifth grade, lol? I partly agree-- the homestead exemption for single-family homes, as it got bigger and bigger, was a big part of the problem. But the picture is a LOT more complex than that! We'd still be in a pile of doo from losing our munic. pension funds in the stock market crash, and that's just one of our many problems. Also-- please hear this in my best Groucho Marx voice-- If we have to start paying pubic supplemental tax to city hall, it's really time to go.
