Anne Arundel Council General Election Round-Up

With thousands of mail-in ballots yet to be counted, some Anne Arundel Council races are too close to call.

Despite a court ruling authorizing local boards of elections to process and tabulate mail-in ballots before the polls closed on election day — the Anne Arundel County Board of Elections opted not to canvass mail-in votes until later this week.

For context, more than 43,000 Anne Arundel voters have cast their ballots by mail. Among those ballots, 26,255 came from Democrats and 9,444 from Republicans. Note: these numbers will likely grow as mail-in ballots continue to arrive via ballot drop boxes and the US Postal Service.
