Voters in District 5 are leading the way in total votes cast during early voting and in % of eligible voters (of course this does not include the numbers for the 83,000+ mail-in votes from Howard County yet). Voters in District 3 have the lowest voter turnout.

Long Reach High School is the popular location to vote early in 2020 with the most votes cast each of the first 7 days of early voting. Wilde Lake High School has had the least early votes cast to date. One has to wonder if the drama at that location is part of the reason.
In 2016 through day 7 of early voting Howard County voters cast 49,919 votes: https://elections.maryland.gov/press_room/2016_stats/PG16%20EarlyVoting%20by%20County.pdf
