Early Voting in Maryland Remains Strong on Second Day

George Wenschhof

Yesterday, the first day totals in Maryland were 32,545 and the breakdown by political party is as follows: Democrats - 20,569, Republicans - 9,317 and "Others" - 2,659.

In Frederick County, the totals were 843 and the breakdown by political party was Democrats - 401, Republicans - 352, and "Others" - 90.

As of 2:00 PM today, the total vote statewide is 15,504 with the breakdown by political party: Democrat - 9,719, Republican - 4,176 and "Others" - 1,609.

An interesting note is Democrats are outvoting Republicans by more than 2-1 across the state. Republicans nationwide have been opined by many to be more energized than Democrats, but that is certainly not the case in Maryland in the first day and a half of early voting.

As additional numbers become available, we will publish.

4:00 PM ET - Total statewide voters - 18,580. Democrats - 11,789, Republicans - 4,900, "Others" - 1,891.
Frederick County total votes - 602. Democrats - 273, Republicans - 243, "Others" - 86


Editor's note -
a thank you to Frederick County Elections Director Stuart Harvey for providing the voting numbers for publication.
