Winchester residents came out to the polls for the primary on March 5 and cast their votes for state and national office.

According to preliminary results from the Town Clerk's office, Joe Biden and Nikki Haley won Winchester voters with 30% of registered voters turning out, about 5,047 out of 16,795 voters. Biden received 2,276 votes (or 45%) and Haley got 1249 (54%), with Donald Trump receiving 980, or 42%.

But 221 Democratic voters voted “no preference,” possibly to protest Biden’s handling of the war in Gaza. Nineteen Republicans also voted “no preference.” Twenty-eight voters left the presidential section of the ballots blank.

One independent voter, who prefers to remain anonymous, said they voted for Haley to send a message to the Republican Party. Haley has since dropped out of the race.
