Here is a recap of early voting in Carroll County through day 8:

Total votes cast in Carroll County through day 8: 14,211

  • Westminster had the most early voters (7,334 votes cast at that location)
  • The turn out numbers on day 8 (Thursday) was the most of any day which tracks with what we have seen in past elections.
  • The 2,929 votes cast on day 8 countywide is the highest single day early voting in a General Election (beating out the 2016 vote count on day 8 of 2,797 votes cast).
  • There have now been more votes cast in Early Voting than in Mail In Voting (at least for now) in Carroll County. See additional details on mail in voting below.

Fun Fact: Of the jurisdictions in Maryland with over 100,000 eligible voters…Carroll County has the third highest percentage of early voters to eligible voters:

  1. Harford County: 11.90%
  2. Howard County: 11.57%
  3. Carroll County: 11.14%
  4. Baltimore County: 9.91%
  5. Charles County: 9.83%
  6. Anne Arundel County: 9.58%
  7. Prince George’s County:  8.71%
  8. Montgomery County 8.31%
  9. Frederick County: 8.18%
  10. Baltimore City: 5.67%

Obviously mail in voting has likely changed how many people come out and vote early. The question that should be asked…do we still need 8 days of early voting now that we have a significantly expanded mail in voting system in Maryland? Something to think about for the future.
