Cecil County Citizens: The Maryland Primary Election was held these past two weeks with early voting and then the official Election Day, Tuesday June 26th. Acknowledging the negative first, the turnout was low in Cecil County with just under 20% of eligible voters casting their ballots. I know there are numerous reasons why citizens cannot get to the polls but given the alternative of one week of early voting access, the turnout was extremely disappointing.
