WILLIAMSBURG — Campaigning is over, and now Williamsburg residents have made their choice.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump won District 7. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton led by roughly 11,000 votes, and Trump had more than 53 percent of GOP ballots cast. Only 3,674 votes have been cast in the Republican contest.

After weeks of debate, campaign rallies and speeches, voters in the 7th Congressional District went to the polls Tuesday to pick Republican and Democratic presidential nominees.

The district includes Williamsburg, as well as a wide swath of Brooklyn from Sunset Park through Brooklyn Heights and into central Brooklyn and Queens.

Emi Stewart, 36, said she supported Bernie for several reasons — climate change in particular.

"I trust him, I'm an emotional person," she said. "I think he'll actually make a difference"

First-time voter Rene Severin, 22, said he was "just all giddy" coming out of the booth.

He said he was motivated to vote by social, racial and economic injustices.

Asked if he was voting for Bernie, he said, "Of course, how could you even ask!"

Still, he said he had some conflict because his mom was a long time Hillary supporter.

"I gotta take a chance, I gotta follow my heart," he said.

Seven Democratic and three Republican delegates were up for grabs in the district.
