Additional Ballots Add to Modest Lead in St. Mary’s Race

This morning, the State Board of Elections revised its unofficial vote counts for numerous races, including many where the remaining absentee and other ballots may prove a deciding factor. One such race is in St. Mary’s County, where the top two candidates for Commission President were separated by only 14 votes in Wednesday’s counts.

As of this morning, the revised counts show incumbent Commission President Jack Russell with 15,326 votes (50.0%) and former Commission President Tom McKay with 15,198 votes (49.6%). The split of 128 votes widens the margin in this closely-contested race, but the tally has not yet been rendered “official.”
