Maryland reaches Election Day With Many Votes Already Cast









Residents will also vote on two statewide ballot questions

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Maryland has reached Election Day after more than half of the state’s eligible voters cast their ballots early, either by mail or in person.

Those who waited to vote on Tuesday will be voicing their choices for president and the state’s eight members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

They’ll also vote on two statewide ballot questions. They are whether to legalize sports betting and whether to give the Maryland General Assembly more power in the state budget process. T

here will be fewer locations to vote on Tuesday than in a normal, nonpandemic year. Elections officials say masks and social distancing are required at the polls.
