Maryland voters go to the polls on July 19 to vote in primary elections, and early voting is underway. Democratic and Republican nominees will be chosen for offices from Congress to statewide offices to county councils. Many of these elections will prove decisive because of lack of competition in the general election.

Early voting opportunities are available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. through July 14. Election Day is Tuesday, July 19, with polls open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
