Will Maryland get Primary results on election night? Not likely

As early voting closes on July 14, the primary election cycle continues on with officials readying for the July 19 Primary Election Day and the more-than-a-week-long process to certify the results that will follow.

Barry Jackson, deputy election director at the Washington County Board of Elections, says all the jurisdictions across the state will “have some sort of results election night,” but adds counting mail-in ballots may cause some counties to be slower than others in certifying their results.

“Some of the larger counties that have 10s of thousands, if not 100s of thousands of mail-in ballots, that’s going to take them longer to count, so it may take them longer to certify,” he said. Montgomery County is the sole jurisdiction in the state to receive over 100,000 requests for mail-in ballots this year.
