Early voting in this yearâ€™s constitutional amendment election wrapped up Friday with vote tallies falling just shy of results from the previous amendment contest two years ago, according to Howard County election officials.
Approximately 275 ballots were cast â€” including mail-in ballots â€” according to County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom, putting the election on track to come close to the 600-plus ballots cast in the 2009 contest.
