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.
