Framingham Election Results: Sortable Charts

For fun, I coded sortable charts for two of the main contested races in Tuesday's local elections. You can sort to see
which candidates did best in which precincts, and also see a separate chart of turnout by precinct.

Board of Selectmen
School Committee
See turnout by precinct

Turnout was a rather embarrassing 14%. But what's really sad is that in the races for Town Meeting representative, two-thirds of the precincts didn't even have enough candidates for all the openings! How can a legislative body be "representative" under such conditions?
