Today is the final day for voters to cast early ballots for Tuesday's election, Howard County Election Administrator Saundra Bloom said.
Bloom reports 227 people have cast early ballots in person and another 133 have requested mail-in ballots. She said 74 people voted Thursday, almost doubling the total of early ballots cast so far.
Voters will pick their party's nominee in five state-wide races Tuesday.
