What Democratic Slate Did Your Precinct Select?

A closer look at Tuesday's Democratic primary for Alexandria City Council.

David Fromm, a longtime officer in the Del Ray Citizens Association and loyal Patch reader, put together this map depicting the top six vote-getters at each of the city’s 26 precincts in Tuesday’s Democratic primary for City Council.

Tim Lovain, Justin Wilson, Allison Silberberg, Del Pepper, Paul Smedberg and John Chapman each earned nominations from a field of 14 candidates, but, as Fromm wrote in an email, “it is interesting to see what the slate for city council would have looked like if very local interests had prevailed.”

In general, candidates did well in and near the precincts where they live. on Tuesday that his large totals at the and Blessed Sacrament precincts in his neighborhood went a long way in helping him secure the most votes (5,388) of any candidate. 

In the precinct, Wilson was the top vote-getter, followed by Lovain, Smedberg, Sean Holihan, Chapman and Pepper.

At the precinct, Wilson took the most votes, followed by Smedberg, Lovain, Pepper, Holihan and Silberberg.

The precinct was a little different; Pepper was the leading vote-getter, followed by Wilson, Victoria Menjivar, Sammie Moshenberg, Chapman and Smedberg.

At the precinct, Wilson took the most votes, followed by Smedberg, Lovain, Menjivar, Melissa Feld (a parent of two Maury students) and Silberberg.

In the Old Town-area precincts, Smedberg took the most votes in the Ladrey Senior Building, Fire Department Headquarters and Durant Center.

The City Hall precinct’s slate included Silberberg, Arthur Peabody, Menjivar, Moshenberg, Boyd Walker and Smedberg.

Some trivia, if I've counted correctly: * Only one precinct selected all 6 citywide winners: 101 (Ladrey) * Three precincts selected only 2 of the citywide winners: 102 (City Hall), 209 (Polk), 305 (Adams) * Despite receiving the most votes citywide, Lovain won outright only two precincts: 202 (George Mason) and 204 (Blessed Sacrament) * Three unsuccessful candidates won at least one precinct: Fossum (210 St. James and 303 Beatley); Menjivar (305 Adams) and Holihan (208 Nova Arts) * Only one candidate failed to appear in the top 6 in more than one precinct: Boyd Walker (who ranked 5th in 102 City Hall)

For the record, Allison Silberberg won 6 precincts in Tuesday's primary: City Hall, Lyles Crouch, Agudas Achim, Beth El, Polk, and Ramsay -- showing strength, support and enthusiasm across Alexandria - from Old Town to the West End.

Thanks for the correction, Eileen.

Eileen, I rechecked my numbers and somehow one entry (for Allison) was off. Not certain how this happened since I was copying and pasting entire columns of numbers from the reported results. Anyway, I have corrected my numbers (the totals agree with those posted) and the map and sent the corrected map to Drew. David
