WASHINGTON COUNTY - Washington County Election Director Dorothy Kaetzel is predicting 75 percent to 80 percent of Washington County's registered voters will cast ballots in today's general election.
In the November 2000 presidential election, 47,604 Washington County residents, or 68.6 percent of registered voters, cast ballots, she said.
Polls at the 46 precincts will be open today from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Kaetzel said.
In today's election, local voters will cast ballots for candidates in a variety of races, including president, U.S. senator and representative and the county Board of Education.
Voters can cast ballots for up to four of the eight school board candidates, she said.
School board President Edward Forrest, 41, Vice President Roxanne Ober, 44, and board member Bernadette Wagner, 47, are seeking re-election. All three live in Hagerstown.
