Afternoon Update: Some Early Returns
An unofficial exit poll conducted by former Harford County Council candidate Eric Daxon (who lost to incumbent Jim McMahan in the Republican Primary) gives a snapshot of a few of the races and issues in one precinct.
Conducted at C. Milton Wright High School between 11am and noon, Daxon asked and reported the following:
Questions do you support or oppose Gun Control?
– 73% oppose gun control.
For governor did you vote for Hogan or Brown?
– 78% voted for Hogan.
For sheriff did you vote for Gahler or Bane?
– 78% voted for Gahler.
According to Daxon, 20 people were polled out of a total of 95 voters during this time and by noon there were 496 total votes at the precinct.

Morning Update: Sunrises and Social Media
As dawn broke over Harford County on Election Day morning, candidates took to social media to post photographs of the sunrise along with inspirational messages, encourage their supporters to hit the ground running today, and show just how early they were up and working in the final day of their campaign.
Some candidates, like District B County Councilman Joe Woods, have no General Election opposition (Woods had no opposition whatsoever in these 2014 races) and are guaranteed a return to office – but were nonetheless encouraging participation in today’s election.
Today is Election Day and this is my 2nd unopposed General Election. I am so thankful for the support and guidance from all of my friends, Family and Supporters. I am also very thankful for the opportunity and the privilege of serving the people of District B and Harford County on the Harford County Council. I will continue to do the very best that I can while serving on the Harford County Council.
Today, I will be working the District B Election Polls. I will be sending out photos and updates from each location. I hope to see many of you out at the polls today.
Although I hand no opponents for this entire 2014 election; I would greatly appreciate you vote.
