We saw a slight decrease in voter turnout between day 5 (Monday) and day 6 (Tuesday) in Howard County. Just over 5,900 votes were cast on day 6. Here is the daily breakdown chart:

This dip on day 6 mirrors what we saw here in Howard county in 2014 and it is in no way an item of concern for me yet. If history holds we should see a nice bump up in voting today.

We are now at 15.72% voter turnout at this point…and remain in 4th place in the state with voter turnout.

I always give you another random piece of information…so I am back looking at Councilmanic districts. Here are the numbers:

(I hate it when the data runs onto the next page).

  • District 1 has the best early voting numbers with 18.14%
  • District 3 remains at the bottom with 12.62%

Keep up the good work Howard County. If you have not voted yet…go out and vote by November 1st and avoid the long lines on election day.
