MoCo Voters Head to the Polls in Council District 4
It's election day in Montgomery County for voters who live in council District 4. Six Democrats and three Republicans are competing for the eastern county seat left vacant by the death in January of Don Praisner.
Polls are open until 8 p.m., with returns available on the County Board of Elections web site starting at 9:20 p.m.
The outcome of today's contests is expected to depend on turnout, with the winners going on to face a Green Party candidate in the May 19 general election. Most of the candidates are planning to spend at least a few hours today campaigning at the politically active retirement community of Leisure World.
The campaign between two of the Democratic candidates - Del. Benjamin Kramer and Board of Education member Nancy Navarro - has grown tense in the final days, with an exchange of hard-hitting mailers. Navarro has sent a series of pieces highlighting some of Kramer's votes in the General Assembly. Kramer, in turn, has sent a mailer featuring Praisner's daughter, Alison Klumpp, chastizing Navarro's tactics.
We'll know soon how voters respond.
