Burlington residents came out in force to vote in today's election. According to Town Clerk Amy Warfield a total of 13,409, or 85 percent, of the total 15,149 eligible voters. 

The town did not go with any party. President Barack Obama took the majority of Burlington votes but the ticket was split for the senate race and Scott Brown beat out Elizabeth Warren in town.

In the 21st Middlesex District State Representative race, Burlington did give the majority to home-town candidate Walter Zenkin over Bedford's Ken Gordon, but not by a big majority. We are currently waiting on Bedford and Wilmington to report their results before calling the race.

On the ballot questions Burlington came out in favor of right to repair and medical marijuana but against assisted suicide.
