Georgetown Votes: DC Election Results 2012
Patch will be providing precinct-by-precinct election results late Tuesday night for residents in Georgetown and surrounding neighborhoods.
Updated 10 a.m. Nov. 7
Georgetown's Precinct 5 and Glover Park's Precinct 11 closed just about on time, but Precinct 6 at Duke Ellington School was still registering voters when polls closed.
The last voter handed in his ballot around 9:30 p.m. Part of the reason for the late voter was a strong turnout among students registering the same day as the election. The numbers below from the Board of Election and Ethics website are not final as they do not include provisional ballots, many of which were cast in Precinct 6.
This list includes only the precincts in the 20007 ZIP code.
