Early Voting Numbers – Howard County – Day 4

Four days of early voting are in the books. As expected, voting numbers were a bit lower on Sunday but in Howard County voting turnout remained the best in the state. Here are the numbers:

Notes:

  • Numbers over the weekend were lower than the first two days but I expect the numbers to jump back up starting today.
  • Miller Library remains the top voting location (so all candidates should have a presence at that location). Bain Center is also a good place to hang out and meet voters. Ridgley’s Run may not be as popular but but is still seeing enough traffic to have someone at that polling location if you can.
  • Early voting by party: (% is of registered voters)
    • Dem – 18,301 (17.81%)
    • Rep – 5,936 (10.42%)
    • Ind – 4,717 (10.71%)
    • Other – 348
  • Early voting by Council District: (% is of registered voters)
    • District 1 – 6,571 (15.67%)
    • District 2 – 5,507 (13.73%)
    • District 3 – 5,046 (12.98%)
    • District 4 – 6,701 (16.32%)
    • District 5 – 5,477 (12.10%)
  • In Howard County, 14.14% of all registered voters have cast votes. Here are some other counties as comparisons:
    • Statewide – 10.26%
    • Montgomery – 11.35%
    • Anne Arundel – 9.35%
    • Baltimore City – 7.57%
    • Baltimore County – 10.35%
    • Prince George’s – 11.83%
    • Carroll – 7.72%
    • Frederick – 8.89%

As mentioned above, total votes cast fell off significantly statewide (day 1 – 122,880, day 2 – 123,020, day 3 – 80,283, day 4 – 74,052). On the upside, Howard had 5,945 votes cast on Sunday which represent 2.90% of all eligible voters which was the highest percentage in the state on day 4 (that is two days in a row Howard lead this category).

There is now only ONE county in the state outperforming Howard in percentage of eligible votes cast: Talbot (17.55%).

Here is one of my favorite stats up to this point…

Baltimore City has 390,616 eligible voters and have cast 29,556 votes so far

Howard County has 207,245 elibile voters and have cast 29,302 votes so far

Democrats in Howard County are really coming out to vote (nearly 18% have already voted through 4 days) but what remains the shocker is that Republican voters are being outpaced (in percentage of eligiable voters) by Independant voters…ever so slightly. The local HoCoGOP folks should be working harder to get their voters to the polls now to avoid the long lines on November 8th.
