It’s Primary Day, and about 1,900 polls across the state are open until 8 p.m. — making for a long day for election observers and candidates in the tightest of primary races.
Click here to find out if you’re a registered Democrat or Republican (the only voters allowed to cast ballots today) and where to vote. More than 77,000 of you voted early this month. Another 18,000 of you returned no-excuse-needed absentee ballots, which will be tallied in a few days.
Maryland is one of seven states and the District of Columbia with primaries today. It’s the closest round to the Nov. 2 general election. And in a heavily Democratic state, some primary races are tantamount to final selection.
Among the races we’ll be watching today are the gubernatorial primaries in both races — though Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley and Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. are expected to prevail, the Baltimore County executive Democratic primary and the Baltimore state’s attorney Democratic primary.
