Voters in Maryland turned out for local races.
Much of the Election Day coverage Tuesday focused on Virginia, but voters went to the polls in Maryland yesterday as well to decide municipal elections across the state.
Mayoral elections headlined the slate in Maryland:
- Bridget Newton was elected mayor of Rockville. She'll replace Phyllis Marcuccio.
- In Gaithersburg, mayor Sidney Katz was returned to office by voters for a fifth term.
- In Frederick, Republican mayor Randy McClement was re-elected to a second term in office, topping his Democratic challenger, Alderwoman Karen Young by a margin of 49 to 32 percent.
- Andrew Fellows ran away with the election in College Park, garnering 80 percent of the vote.
Meanwhile in Annapolis, the election is still undecided. Incumbent Democrat Joshua Cohen trails his Republican challenger Mike Pantelides by 84 votes, but did not concede, noting that more than 300 absentee ballots and votes from a broken machine in one ward of the city have yet to be counted.
Both are scheduled to be counted tomorrow, when the results of the election will be certified.
