CAMBRIDGE, Md.-  In Dorchester County, Tuesday was primary day for two contested city council seats.

Several of the candidates set up tables outside Sailwinds Park, trying to score some last minute voters on their way to the polls.  Inside, turnout was relatively low.  As of 3 o'clock that day, just over 160 people of the 3,000 eligible voters had cast their ballots.  There were an additional 100+ absentee ballots, which means the final results of the primary will not be known until Wednesday.

"We do have quite a few in the office.  Could possibly change who wins the spinoff tonight," said Genevieve Cannon with the Dorchester Board of Elections.

There are three candidates each for Districts 3 and 4. The primary will whittle that down to two candidates each.

DISTRICT 3

Frank Cooke

Armah Dashiell

La-Shon Foster

DISTRICT 4

Dion Banks

Dave Cannon

Carlos Wilson
