Washington caucuses: A roundup

I'm going to use this post to aggregate caucus coverage from the regional traditional media and the netroots community (local and national).

UPDATE: Welcome fellow Daily Kos readers! Here's a quick compilation of our Live Inside the Washington Caucuses coverage:
Let's start off with a few reports from NPI readers:


Here in Madrona (central district edge, not gold coast) we had 98 votes for Obama and 16 for Clinton. Expected Obama victory, but amazing spread. I voted Obama, but am an equally strong Clinton supporter. I'll be very happy however it turns out.
Leland Bryant Ross:

I went to my caucus in Seattle's marginalized Eastlake neighborhood as one of the marginalized, to wit, a Gravel caucusgoer, the only one in my precinct; I switched to Obama before the delegate election. In our precinct our five delegates split 4 for Obama to one for Clinton; the actual sign-in at the vote was 84 Obama, 19 Clinton, three undecided. And from what I just saw on FoxNews (yikes!) it was the same story in the Palouse and in Lewis County. It sounds wonderful. All these kids finally get their chance to vote for John Kennedy! ;-)

I just got back from the caucus on Bel-Red road, and it does look like it's going to be Obama all the way. In my precinct, it was 70% Obama, 30% Clinton. Friends of mine in two other precincts say it went 4 to 0 Obama and 4 to 1 Obama. Let's hope this trend continues throughout the state!

Kirkland here. The community hall they booked for my precinct and its neighbors was also too small to hold everyone. They ended up having to move some of the precincts to another location. Enthusiasm on the Democratic side is extremely high this year.

In our precinct, Obama won over Hillary 3 to 1. Other precincts in the hall voted similarly.
Barb Levy:

I'm in the 36th district, and my precinct had 112 votes, which led to 7 delegates for Obama and 2 for Clinton. I look forward to being a delegate for Obama for my district on April 5th!
Now, here's a list of posts from other blogs in the local netroots community:

Not sure if you'd call us a netroots community since we're not 100% politics, but our West Seattle reports (precinct by precinct notes in the comments) are here Anecdotally, West Seattle seems to have gone 75% Obama, 25% Clinton.
