Notes:

  • Numbers picked up on Monday, not as high as I expected but they were higher than Sunday. Hopefully the numbers will continue to rise…but now I am a bit concerned with only 3 days of early voting remaining.
  • 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 remian an early voting location unless people start voting at that location…so be sure to visit that location. At some point someone will start to look at cost vs reward and close that location down.
  • Early voting by party: (% is of registered voters)
    • Dem – 21,963 (21.38%)
    • Rep – 7,375 (12.95%)
    • Ind – 5,702 (12.94%)
    • Other – 427
  • Early voting by Council District: (% is of registered voters)
    • District 1 – 7,893 (18.82%)
    • District 2 – 6,613 (16.48%)
    • District 3 – 6,127 (15.76%)
    • District 4 – 8,107 (19.74%)
    • District 5 – 6,727 (14.86%)
  • In Howard County, 17.11% of all registered voters have cast votes. Here are some other counties as comparisons:
    • Statewide – 12.89%
    • Montgomery – 13.99%
    • Anne Arundel – 11.76%
    • Baltimore City – 9.73%
    • Baltimore County – 13.12%
    • Prince George’s – 15.39%
    • Carroll – 9.68%
    • Frederick – 10.74%

As mentioned above, total votes pick up slightly statewide (day 1 – 122,880, day 2 – 123,020, day 3 – 80,283, day 4 – 74,052, day 5 – 102,617). Prinace George’s, Queen Anne’s and Talbot had the highest turnout yesterday…then followed by Howard.

There are now two counties in the state outperforming Howard in percentage of eligible votes cast: Talbot (21.62%) and Queen Anne’s (17.59%).

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

Baltimore City has 390,616 eligible voters and have cast 37,996 votes so far

Howard County has 207,245 elibile voters and have cast 35,467 votes so far

Democrats in Howard County are really coming out to vote (over 21% have already voted through 5 days) and finally GOP voters are ahead of Independants…ever so slightly. Independant voters seemed to stay home yesterday. I wonder if they will come out today or remain home again. Time will tell..
