The number of Washington County residents taking advantage of early voting for Tuesday’s primary elections was up by more than 500 compared with the 2010 primaries, a county election official said Thursday night.
Six days of early voting concluded in Maryland at 8 p.m. Thursday.
Kaye Robucci, director of the Washington County Board of Elections, said 1,384 voters cast ballots in the county since Saturday.
Robucci said 292 people cast ballots on Thursday, the highest among the six days.
“They were very busy this morning,” she said.
Robucci said 810 Republicans cast ballots in early voting and 572 Democrats. Two unaffiliated voters also cast ballots, Robucci said.
The two unaffiliated voters said they believed they had changed their party affiliations, so they were allowed to vote using provisional paper ballots, she said.
Election officials will determine if the two voters had changed their affiliations in time for early voting, she said.
