Updated: Early Voting Begins in Md.

ANNAPOLIS, Md.- Early voting centers for Maryland's 2014 primary election open across the state Thursday morning, according to election officials.

Eligible Democratic and Republican voters can vote early at a designated early voting center from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Thursday, June 19, including Saturday and Sunday.

For Wicomico County voters, the center is located in the Midway room of the Wicomico County Youth & Civic Center, 500 Glen Ave., Salisbury, Md. The Worcester County location is the Gull Creek Community Sunroom, at 1 Meadow St.. Berlin, Md.

Wicomico County Board of Elections Director Anthony Gutierrez hopes voters turn out in large numbers, saying, "We've been doing this since 2010, and word of mouth is spreading from voter to voter about the convenience of having more than one day to cast your ballot."

An official list
of early voting centers for residents of all counties is available, and Gutierrez stressed it is important voters report to a center in their home county.

Voters also have the option of voting via an absentee ballot, or in person during the primary election, June 24, when polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Officials said voters should try to arrive between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in order to avoid delays.
