  1. Other interesting facts:. Notwithstanding the large number of primary candidates in the last two elections, the available address information shows that none of them resided in County Council District 3. In fact, it appears that there were no candidates from District 3 in 2010, 2008, 2006 and apparently in 2004 either. (The available information for 2004 is incomplete. I am still looking to see if I overlooked a candidate from District 3). So before Howard County changes the election method for School Board, perhaps we should ask why nobody from District 3 has run for the past decade.
