Most important, thanks go out to the voters, who turned out in solid numbers in Carroll County, outpacing Maryland as a whole. Unofficially, with absentee and provisional ballots still to be counted, Carroll County has cast 72,429 votes. With 120,916 registered voters, that’s a percentage of 59.9. (Maryland’s overall percentage was around 54). In 2014, during the last midterm election, some 2,000 Carroll votes were tallied after Election Day. With similar numbers this year, some 10,000 more voters will have come out than in 2014 and Carroll would have one of the higher percentages in the state at around 61.5 percent.
