Bouquets of flowers in Mason jars filled a table with a poster-sized thank-you card as Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” blared from a portable speaker Tuesday in the parking lot of the Montgomery County Board of Elections. The occasion was a public appreciation for election workers as Maryland’s primary season gets underway. Nancy Soreng, co-president of the League of Women Voters of Maryland, led a cheer: “Election heroes! We love you!” as members of civic groups such as the League of Women Voters, Common Cause and For the People milled about.
