Next to last day of early voting, and the same patterns are holding. Montgomery County is continuing to perform very well, but Prince George’s is – as expected – closing the gap. MoCo leads by a scant 311 voters with a day to go, and it is likely that Prince George’s will end up taking the lead after tomorrow. But it will be a narrow lead, far smaller than 2014’s spread of over 5,000 voters.
Meanwhile, Baltimore County continues to expand its lead over Baltimore City, but the margin today was a minimal 75 voters, and an overall lead of 624 votes. Two years ago, that Day 7 lead was 625 votes, and the final margin was just under 3,000 votes. That too will not be happening this year.
The strong combined performance of the Howard/Anne Arundel duo continued today, with Howard putting up its highest daily total yet, and Anne Arundel throwing down a similarly high turnout. As a percentage of registered voters, both Howard and Anne Arundel are far outpacing the Big 4 with 10.39% and 8.68%, respectively, with the City, the County and Montgomery all bunched together under 8%, and Prince George’s limping along behind at 6.36%.
One more day of EV data to go.
