EASTON — Voters were lining up at the door outside numerous Talbot County polling places Tuesday morning but the numbers seemed to be lower than expected due to the high turnout for early voting.
Hilary Clinton yielded a total of 7,865 votes from early voting and the Election Day turnout and Donald Trump received 10,098 votes. Absentee and provisional ballots still have not been counted.
According to the Talbot County Board of Elections Office, Talbot County yielded a total of 9,226 early voters over the course of eight days. Talbot County had the highest percentage of early voter turnout in the state of Maryland; more than 34 percent of registered voters showed up to the polls early.
EASTON — Tom Schuyler of Woolford and Steven Schuyler of Church Creek, Tom’s son, will be traveling to Haiti on Tuesday, Nov. 8, but it will not be to avoid Election Day. Once in Haiti, the duo will be performing humanitarian work, helping to provide relief for those affected by Hurricane Matthew. This will be Steven’s first time outside the United States and Tom’s 13th aid trip to Haiti.
“I mainly go for missionary and humanitarian reasons. This is more humanitarian. It just depends on if the need is there,” Tom said. “Many of their crops were destroyed, so there will be (a need for) food, clothing and whatever else we can do. If we have time, which we probably won’t, we will try to help them get some shelter beyond what they already have.”
Tom began his aid missions in 1998, and once even took his wife, Lisa, along on a trip. During the upcoming trip, he and his son will be traveling to Les Cayes, a town with a population of more than 86,500 people, they said.
