MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos says the certified results of last week’s presidential primary confirm the results reported election night.

The official certification of the vote that took place March 1 confirmed that favorite son Sen. Bernie Sanders trounced former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

Sanders received more than 85.7 percent of the votes cast while Clinton received almost 13.6 percent.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump won 32.3 percent of the vote, defeating Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who received 30 percent of the GOP vote.

The top two GOP vote getters were followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Condos says just over 197,000 Vermonters cast ballots in the primary, a turnout of 44.5 percent.
