Election workers will begin counting roughly 2,500 provisional ballots at 10 a.m. Wednesday, potentially moving the needle in Anne Arundel County primary races that remain too close to call. In all, there are 8,020 outstanding ballots — 5,459 Democratic and 2,561 Republican. A final canvass is scheduled for 10 a.m., Friday. Following last week’s canvass of 13,683 mail-in ballots, Republican candidate for county executive Jessica Haire held a lead over Herb McMillan of about 1,100 votes. While some primary races for statewide office have been called, including the Democratic and Republican nominations for governor (Wes Moore and Dan Cox, respectively), comptroller (Brooke Lierman and Barry Glassman, respectively) and attorney general (Anthony Brown and Michael Peroutka, respectively), others are still yet to be decided.
