More than 1,000 Democrats attended the area caucus at Lake Forest Park Elementary on Saturday morning.

Democrats caucused in 20 precincts in the gym/cafeteria complex. This large turnout made for a crowded but wonderfully patient and positive group. Some precincts chose to go outside to caucus and enjoy the beautiful weather and cherry blossoms.

Results are still being officially authorized by the Washington State Democratic Party but here is the tally at this time for the precincts in Lake Forest Park:

  • Delegates awarded to Bernie Sanders: 54 – 61%
  • Delegates awarded to Hillary Clinton: 38 – 39%
