Matthew McCloskey has put together a map of results from Tuesday's preliminary for the four at-large seats on the Boston City Council. You can get a good idea of the numbers at a glance citywide, then click on specific precincts to see the top four finishers.
Now before making any conclusions, keep in mind that barely more than 11% of registered Boston voters actually went to the polls.
But with that out of the way, the most obvious result is that Michelle Wu ran strong pretty much everywhere. Sure, Michael Flaherty did better than her in a few spots (his hometown of South Boston and parts of West Roxbury, East Boston and Charlestown), but that map shows her finishing first in most of the city's 255 precincts.
It's a good base to work on should she decide to try a run for mayor in two years.
McCloskey has also created a map showing the winners if Wu hadn't run.
