Not surprisingly, Obama soared to victory in Pittsfield, taking 14, 503 votes to McCain’s 4,085 with 13 of 14 precincts reporting. Kerry and Olver are posting similar numbers. What’s surprising is that Question 2, on the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana, is winning 2-1 in Pittsfield – 18,954 to 7,970.
Question 1, on the elimination of the income tax, failed more than 5 to 1; a ban on greyhound racing is passing, 3-1. Pittsfield is decisive in its decisions – no close calls here. Thanks to Berkshire News Network for providing returns.
Numbers from North Adams haven’t come in yet and it will be awhile before the small towns begin reporting.
