The plural of anecdote is data. Here’s some data. Turnout was very heavy at our predominantly Republican precinct in Carroll County when Mrs. Hoge and I voted this morning. Coworkers also report long lines in other majority Republican precincts in Anne Arundel, Carroll, and Charles Counties. Turnout is also reported heavy in predominately Democrat PG County.
Interest seems more directed to the same-sex “marriage” and gambling ballot questions among the PG County voters I’ve talked with than in the political races.
In other voting related news, my in-laws in the Chicago area report low turnout in cemetery precincts. That could be a bad sign for the President.
