Marylanders are getting their first opportunity to cast ballots in early voting in the hotly contested presidential election between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump today.
Turnout across the state has been high. About 95,000 people had voted across the state by 5 p.m. On the first day of early voting in 2012, 78,000 people cast ballots.
