All eyes were on the race for District Attorney yesterday, and incumbent District Attorney Larry Kraser has won the Democratic Primary by a large margin, getting approximately 65% of the vote.

In the 33rd Ward, challenger Carlos Vega fared well, garnering 360 votes to Krasner’s 295.

Turnout was extremely low in the 33rd Ward which covers Juniata Park and a part of Kensington. Poll workers shared their description of the morning’s turnout yesterday, saying:

“Very very low” – at Harrowgate PAL

“Light turnout” – at Juniata Park Boys & Girls Club

“Dead” – at Piccoli Playground

“Molasses pours faster than voter turnout today!” – at Francis Hopkinson School

Krasner will face Republican Charles Peruto, who ran uncontested, in November’s General Election

Following is the vote count as reported by the City Commissioner’s Office in each division of the 33rd Ward this morning:
