In some of Maryland’s most anticipated elections this year, one outcome is more likely than any other: Voters will have to wait to know the winners. In Maryland’s largest precincts, results likely won’t be known for days, or even weeks, after Tuesday’s primary. Nearly half a million mail-in ballots have gone out to Marylanders ahead of primary day — an enormous volume compared to any election prior to two years ago, when the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic prompted an exclusively mail-in primary. The sheer volume of vote-by-mail requests and the timing of a gubernatorial contest in the doldrums of mid-July have combined for a “totally unprecedented” election that could lean heavily on the mail-in tally, former Maryland Secretary of State John Willis said.
