Brentwood residents voted in the presidential primary elections on March 15. They voted in three places: the Brentwood Community Center, Brentwood City Hall and the Brentwood Forest Condominiums. Election officials at the community center commented on how busy they were with a large turnout, though at 11 a.m. the wait was only about five minutes.

In both St. Louis County and statewide, Hillary Clinton received the most votes from Democrats and Donald Trump was the favorite of Republicans. Following is the breakdown, with only candidates who received at least 5 percent of the vote listed.
