As Election Day nears, the races for Baltimore County school board are heating up, with ads and endorsements highlighting the political divide in what are officially nonpartisan contests. School board elections have long been races that some voters rarely think about until they enter the polling place, but this year in Baltimore County, Democrats are making a last-minute pitch urging voters to beware of candidates they believe hold extreme views. On the other side, some Republican elected officials are lending their support to candidates voicing conservative views on the teaching of race and gender. The endorsements elevate the school board races, which are some of the only general election contests where there is little polling, and the outcomes are less clear.
