The Sun's Carrie Wells reports from Hampstead Hill Elementary in Canton:
John Eddy, a retired doctor from Baltimore, said he was voting for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.
"I like what O'Malley has done so far and I want to continue with that approach," said Eddy, 65, who cast his ballot in the early morning. He said he especially liked O'Malley's efforts to expand gun control and to help the environment.
In Baltimore, Eddy said he felt education was the most important issue, which is why he wanted to reelect state Sen. Bill Ferguson.
"We live near Patterson Park and sometimes you see kids running wild after school," he said. Eddy thought elected leaders ought to "get the crime rate down through education."
Carrie Wells shares another voter's story from Hampstead Hill Elementary in Canton:
Spencer Pollock, a 28-year-old lawyer from Baltimore, had a simple reason for voting on Tuesday. "I'm sick of the state's policies. Taxes are too high," he said.
Pollock, who voted in the early morning, said he favored Larry Hogan in the gubernatorial primary.
"I like that he's a moderate Republican because I'm more of a moderate Republican," he said. "I prefer Hogan's vision over the vision that we've had the last several years."
Pollock said he also wanted to reelect Baltimore judge Philip S. Jackson because "I clerked for him and he's a great guy."
Pollock also said he would vote for Gregg Bernstein in the Baltimore State's Attorney's race.
"I think it's been a good progress," he said. "I didn't like [former State's Attorney Pat] Jessamy's vision. I think Bernstein tackles the larger problems."
One more voter's story from Carrie Wells at Hampstead Hill Elementary in Canton:
Jennifer Thien, a 54-year-old IT professional, said she voted for Del. Heather Mizeur.
"I like that she's very progressive," she said after casting her ballot in the early morning. As for why she wasn't voting for Attorney General Doug Gansler or Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, she said, "We've had eight years of that."
