The majority of votes cast in the 10 peninsula and island towns in the Democratic Presidential Primary went to Bernie Sanders with 936 votes, followed closely by Joe Biden with 928 votes.

Local voters also agreed, by a large margin, with the rest of state on keeping the strict new law on vaccinating schoolchildren.

In local voting, Elizabeth Warren received 588 votes, and Mike Bloomberg received 307, finishing third and fourth, respectively, among Democratic candidates.

Late Wednesday morning, the Bangor Daily News called the statewide Democratic Presidential Primary for Biden.

Statewide, Biden collected 34.3 percent of the vote, with 91.6 percent of the state reporting. He edged out Sanders who received 33 percent of the vote.

Strong turnout caused ballot shortages in several towns, said local ballot clerks.

Deer Isle Town Clerk Heather Cormier said the biggest draw was the referendum on vaccinations.
