Early voters flocked to the ballot box in Maryland this year. Over 450,000 have already cast a ballot.

Media outlets are reporting that this year's early voting turnout surpassed 2014 numbers in Maryland by Day 5 of an 8-day early voting period. With one more full day to go (Nov. 1 is the last day), Maryland continues to shatter the record with its robust voter activity. The question is, does this mean more people are voting, or are they just shifting how and when they vote? The answer remains to be seen!
