"I Voted" stickers

"I Voted" stickers

This week, Washingtonians headed to the polls, or, some of them did–only about 18 percent of registered voters cast ballots. But in Maryland, where election day is next Tuesday, early voting in the primaries is up from previous years. We look at both elections, starting with the results of Initiative 77 in Washington, DC. In Maryland, the state’s voters will choose candidates for Prince George’s and Montgomery County executives as well as a Democratic challenger to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

Sorting political fact from fiction, and having fun while we’re at it. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
