Election Results To Start Filtering In Later Tonight

Montgomery County Board of Elections officials say local results from today’s election should start coming in at 9:20 p.m. and be updated every 20 minutes.

Early voting results will be tabulated and available as soon after 8 p.m. as possible. Almost 13 percent of all Montgomery County voters did early voting.

Polls in Maryland close at 8 p.m. tonight.

The races for President and one of the state’s two Senate seats are expected to heavily favor incumbent Democrats Barack Obama and Ben Cardin. District 8 House of Representatives incumbent Chris Van Hollen, of Kensington, is also expected to cruise to re-election.

Many eyes locally will be on ballot question results, including a county police bargaining rights question and four high profile state questions. At the end of the night, Maryland could be the first state to approve same-sex marriage by referendum. There could also be a Las Vegas-style casino destined for Prince George’s County and the passage of the Dream Act, which would allow children of illegal immigrants to get in-state tuition to state colleges.
