Third Ward Numbers

Sigh, the Recorder gets the numbers backwards for primary results(here):

Recorder says:

DeRossi won the Republican primary over Robert Going, collecting 80 votes to Going’s 66. Meanwhile, Martin gathered 109 votes to defeat Ron Wierzbicki and his 72 votes in the Democratic race.

Pollwatchers said the turnout was about normal for a primary election, with 146 of 853 registered Democrats and 181 of 539 registered Republicans casting ballots.

It should be 146 of 539 (27.1%) Republican and 181 of 853(21.2%) Democrats.
