The voting center at the Randallstown Community Center nearly matched that total on Saturday.

Brown said the center had 2,187 votes cast on the first day of early voting, followed by Honeygo Run Community Center (1,767), Catonsville, Towson (1,395) and North Point Library (1,281).

She said four additional machines were brought into service at Randallstown while each of the other four centers had two additional voting machines installed on Sunday to handle the growing number of voters

"I was prepared for what we've been through the last time," Brown said on the preparations that included testing each machine before it was put on the floor.

"The rooms can't handle any more," Brown said. "Sure, I could put 100 machines in. But where would I put the people? If I put extra machines in, I would have to put more people outside."

Brown said those in line have been great and she had heard few negative comments from those in line.

"They're serious," she said. "There are some serious voters out there."

Mattie Spencer was not bothered by the wait, even though it usually took much less time when she voted at her normal polling place at Woodlawn High.

Spencer said she has been voting for more than 50 years and came out Sunday to make sure her vote was counted.

"This isn't so bad," she said.
