Ballots won’t be tabulated and released for about 24 hours after polls
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Ballots cast in person in Maryland’s special congressional election won’t be tabulated and released for about 24 hours after polls close to give potential germs a chance to die to protect poll workers. It’s one of the safety measures that’s being taken in an unprecedented Maryland election on Tuesday during the coronavirus pandemic.
Only three places for in-person voting will be open. Election officials are urging eligible voters to mail in their ballots to decide who will serve the rest of the term of the late Elijah Cummings. Democrat Kweisi Mfume is running against Republican Kimberly Klacik.
