Caucus results, part II

I’ve heard of important political decisions being made in green silk boardrooms, but this is the first time I’ve ever been involved in a decision made in a community center kitchen.

Oh well. Hail democracy in action! My precinct alone had nearly 120 people show up. (Dylan, by contrast, noted that one year he was part of a caucus of three.) 120 people in an industrial kitchen makes for not a lot of breathing room, so we escaped after the initial tallies were reported. There’s still an ongoing discussion of how to assign our district’s ‘fractional’ delegate, and I wish them well of it.

Send in your caucus stories. Other Metroblogging authors will be reporting in through the afternoon, I’m sure.

    If precinct 1362 is any indication, our caucus, which had a total of 7 delegates, voted 6-Obama, 1-Clinton (after an earlier 5-Obama, 1-Clinton, 1-Undecided). I believe our precinct had 70-something people?

    Kinda disorganized from the get go but was stunned by the turnout in so many places including my precinct in Ballard.
