Numbers are based on recent report from state elections official.
The finding that 35% of Marylanders voted by mail in the July primaries in from preliminary information.
Nikki Charlson, deputy administrator with the Maryland State Board of Elections, said the one-third number is “slightly lower than [in] 2020. We weren’t sure if that started a new trend or not. It does look like voting by mail is here to stay.”
Charlson also said that prior to 2020 mail-in voting was consistently under 10% of the total ballots cast in an election.
