Notes:

  • 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 had its second best day of early voting…maybe because I went there yesterday…who knows.
  • Speaking of voting…while at Ridgley’s Run yesterday I ran into supporters of Mavis Ellis, Christina Delmont-Small, Vicky Cutroneo and folks supporting “Yes on A”. I was able to take this photo:
  • cwvy5n9xgaandr6
  • Early voting by party: (% is of registered voters)
    • Dem – 30,226 (29.42%)
    • Rep – 10,871 (18.93%)
    • Ind – 8,246 (18.72%)
    • Other – 625
  • Early voting by Council District: (% is of registered voters)
    • District 1 – 11,098 (26.47%)
    • District 2 – 9,419 (23.48%)
    • District 3 – 8,629 (22.20%)
    • District 4 – 11,177 (27.22%)
    • District 5 – 9,555 (21.11%)
  • In Howard County, 24.07% of all registered voters have cast votes. Here are some other counties as comparisons:
    • Statewide – 18.62%
    • Montgomery – 20.10%
    • Anne Arundel – 16.88%
    • Baltimore City – 14.27%
    • Baltimore County – 19.21%
    • Prince George’s – 22.49%
    • Carroll – 13.94%
    • Frederick – 15.30%

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, day 6 – 106,668, day 7 – 116,664). Queen Anne’s and Talbot had the highest percentage turnout yesterday…then followed by Howard.

There are still two counties in the state outperforming Howard in percentage of eligible votes cast: Talbot (29.69%) and Queen Anne’s (25.26%).

Democrats in Howard County are really coming out to vote (nearly 30% have already voted through 7 days) and GOP voters remain ahead of Independents with turnout…ever so slightly. I have yet to figure out why GOP voters do not like to vote early…but they do not!!!

A little history you might find interesting: (we should get enough votes today to surpass both these years combined)

In 2014 Howard County had 21,432 votes cast in early voting (10.97% of eligible voters) over 8 days.

In 2012 Howard County had 30,463 votes cast in early voting (16.14% of eligible voters) over 7 days.
