While the strongest Browne vote was in New Salem (6%), [this may be a typographic error in Public Document 43], Browne's votes were substantially concentrated in east and north Massachusetts, and along Route 495 from Marlborough to points due north.

The Libertarian candidate did not get onto the ballot. Analysis by precinct and town implies the Libertarian write-in candidate got around 1000 votes in Worcester and perhaps half that many in other areas.
