Caucus results Saturday from Democrats in the 32nd Legislative District were consistent with statewide trends.

Democrats in the 32nd District reported turnout that was heavy but nearly 20 percent ower than the record turnout of 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama was competing for the nomination with then-Sen. Hillary Clinton. Statewide turnout was 8 percent lower than in 2008.

Shoreline and nearby 32nd District Democrats reported that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led former Secretary of State Clinton in presidential-preference support by a 70.4 percent to 28.9 percent margin. The district also includes part of northwest Seattle, all of Lynnwood and Woodway, the south part of Edmonds and some unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County.

Statewide results showed Sanders leading Clinton by a 73 percent to 27 percent margin.

The district held all of its hundreds of caucuses at three sites -- Shorewood High School, Edmonds-Woodway High School, and Broadview Thompson Elementary School in northwest Seattle.

The 46th Legislative District, including Lake Forest Park, showed Sanders with the same 73-27 percent lead that he had statewide.

The 46th District includes Kenmore and northeast Seattle in addition to Lake Forest Park. While the 32nd District held caucuses from all of its precincts at three sites, the 46th divided its precinct caucuses among several sites. All the LFP caucuses were held at Lake Forest Park Elementary.

So many people showed up for the LFP caucuses that a few precincts decided to meet outside.
