Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has one last hurdle before she can take office in her own right. The Democrat who assumed the post last year after her predecessor stepped down amid scandal, is favored to win Tuesday's general election in a city where Republicans make up just 10 percent of registered voters, according to the Associated Press.
Rawlings-Blake's challengers include Republican Alfred Griffin III and write-in candidate Armand Girard, who is also a Republican.
Only about 22 percent of eligible voters cast ballots in September's mayoral primary. Turnout is expected to be lower Tuesday.
Voters will also cast ballots for city council members and president. They'll also consider two ballot questions: whether to establish a fund to maintain school facilities and whether to lower the age requirement for city council members from 21 to 18.
