ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials have certified election results showing Democrat Joe Biden won the state’s 10 electoral votes.
Maryland’s Board of State Canvassers on Friday approved a declaration of results during a meeting held remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Results show 65.4% of votes, or close to 2 million, were cast for Biden in the heavily Democratic state. President Donald Trump received 32.2% of votes.
Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1 in Maryland. In 2016, Trump received 34% of the votes in the state.
A Republican presidential candidate hasn’t won Maryland in 32 years. George H.W. Bush was the last to do so in 1988.
