Belmont voters hit the polls Tuesday for a few contested state primary races, with about 20 percent of the town’s 16,373 registered voters casting ballots.

In the Republican primary for the Seventh District Congressional seat, Woburn doctor Gerry Dembrowski gained 56 percent of the vote to beat Thomas Tierney, a Framingham actuary.  According to unofficial results, Belmont voters went for Dembrowski by a 483-394 margin.  Dembrowski will face Democratic incumbent Edward Markey, who has held the seat since 1976.  The Seventh District includes Belmont, Lexington, Arlington and Watertown.   

Incumbent Marilyn M. Pettito Devaney beat Lowell’s Corey A. Belanger in the Democratic primary for the third district governor’s council seat.  Devaney will go on to face Belmont resident Nicholas Iannuzzi, who is running as an Independent. 

State Rep. William Brownsberger, a Democrat, ran unopposed in the primary.  He will face Belmont resident Lalig Musserian, an Independent, in the November primary. 

State Sen. Steven Tolman defeated his primary challenger, William Feegbeh by a 92 percent margin.  In Belmont, Tolman received 2099 votes to Feegbeh’s 162.

The general election will take place Tuesday, November 2.
