Tomorrow is Election Day for the MD Primaries! All reporting thus far is showing that the race for Governor is going to be a tight one, as is the race for Attorney General. Make sure you get out there and vote your concerns. In these kinds of elections, the winner is often decided in the Primaries, not the General Election, so it’s important to vote tomorrow.
Your polling station is located at Providence Insp Bap Church, 850 Edmondson Ave.
The MD Board of Elections Page has information about the candidates, the districts, ballot information, and more.
Additionally, we have developed our own MD Election Page for your use.
