How Did Port Vote This Year?
In our little hamlet, approximately 67 percent of the registered voters cast their ballots on Nov.7. (As a point of information, there are approximately 19,835 registered voters in Port Washington.). The word among politicos is that Port is an independently-minded "swing" town which is usually up for grabs, depending on the candidates. The voting in this election confirms that notion.
