MoCo Election Off to a "Slow, But Steady" Start
Montgomery County voters arriving at one of the county's largest precincts this morning were greeted by a receiving line of campaign signs and candidates as they prepared to participate in the special election to fill an open on the council.
Turnout was "slow, but steady" early in the day for the District 4 primary contests, according to Louise Armentrout, the chief Democratic judge at Leisure World's Clubhouse I precinct in Silver Spring. As of 11 a.m., just 212 Democrats and 71 Republicans had voted at Armentrout's traditionally busy polling place.
Outside, Democrats Benjamin Kramer and Cary Lamari, and Republican Andrew Padula shook hands with potential supporters. Democrat Nancy Navarro had already stopped by earlier this morning as had County Executive Isiah Leggett, who is backing Kramer.
The candidates competing in today's primary contests were in agreement on at least one issue: the weather. Those interviewed said they were grateful that the thundershowers forecast for today had so far not materialzed.
