Washington County Election Recap

HAGERSTOWN, MD News (11/9/2022) – Election day is over, the ballots are counted, and the results are in. While it’s possible for some races to shift based on mail-in and provisional ballots, let’s take a look at what we do know about Washington County in the 2022 Gubernatorial Election.

These results are not final, as there are a significant number of mail-in ballots left to count.

CountyBallots Left

As of November 7th, there were 4,950 mail-in ballots left to count for Washington County, and an unknown number of provisional ballots were case on November 8th. The ballots appear to be approximately 1.6 Democrat ballots for every 1 Republican ballots, meaning that the mail-in ballots will likely lean Democrat for Washington County. However, the state has not released how many of those ballots are Democrat or Republican. The state has also not released how many of the Montgomery County mail-in ballots are within Congressional District 6.

The following are unofficial results as of 11/9/22, and subject to change as more ballots are processed.
