The only change was in the order of the Washington County Commissioner nominees in the Democratic primary. Donna L. Brightman received enough absentee votes to move from fifth to fourth, passing J. Herbert Hardin. Both will advance to the general election.

HAGERSTOWN - A new law that allows every Maryland registered voter to request an absentee ballot has led to a spike in applicants and could affect the outcome of the Washington County Board of Education race, the county's election director said Thursday. "It's most likely that'll be decided by absentee vote. It'll be that close," Dorothy Kaetzel said. The potentially thousands of absentee voters also could determine the outcome of the Washington County Commissioners race and the duel between John Donoghue and Paul Muldowney to be the state delegate from subdistrict 2C, Kaetzel said.
