For the first time in 28 years, Minnesota conducted a
Presidential Nomination Primary and President Donald Trump and former Vice
President Joe Biden were decisive winners in Wright County.
President Trump ran unopposed on the ballot and
received 3,298 votes. There were 41 write-in votes.
In the primary for Democrats, there were 8,741 ballots
cast in Wright County, including several candidates who were running at the
time the ballot was printed but have since dropped out of the race.
Biden received 4,294 votes (49.12 percent) to run away
from the field. He was followed by Bernie Sanders (2,053 votes, 23.49 percent),
Mike Bloomberg (933 votes, 10.67 percent), Elizabeth Warren (880 votes, 10.07
percent), Amy Klobuchar (395 votes, 4.52 percent), Pete Buttigieg (77 votes,
0.88 percent), Tulsi Gabbard (36 votes, 0.41 percent), “uncommitted” ballots
(33 votes, 0.38 percent), Andrew Yang (22 votes, 0.25 percent), Tom Steyer (7
votes, 0.08 percent), Michael Bennet (5 votes, 0.06 percent), Marianne
Williamson (2 votes, 0.02 percent), John K. Delaney (2 votes, 0.02 percent),
Cory Booker (1 vote, 0.01 percent) and Julian Castro (1 vote, 0.01 percent).
The only candidate of the 15 names that were on the ballot who didn’t receive a
vote was Deval Patrick.
While primary turnout is typically much lower than the
general election in November, a total of 12,080 votes were cast in Wright
County. That represents 14.8 percent of the county’s 81,394 registered voters
as of 7 a.m. Tuesday, March 3.
All election results remain unofficial until canvassed.
