Maryland voters head to polls in 1st June primary

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland voters are going to the polls to choose candidates for governor, attorney general and various state and local offices.

Nine precincts in Montgomery County were reporting errors with electronic poll books used to look up voter names. Affected voters were permitted to cast a provisional ballot.

A county elections official said Tuesday afternoon that replacement electronic poll books were delivered.

Maryland Board of Elections spokeswoman Nikki Charlson says a tree fell on a power line in Allegany County, briefly cutting electricity to a polling place.

Voters can cast ballots until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

In the Democratic primary for governor, voters are choosing from Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Douglas Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur. There are four candidates in the Republican gubernatorial primary.
