ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Latest on Election Day 2016 in Maryland (all times local):

9:10 a.m.

Maryland’s elections administrator says a handful of polling places in Baltimore opened late, but she is not hearing of any other problems as voting gets underway around the state.

Linda Lamone said by telephone Tuesday morning that the three polling places that opened late, opened within minutes. Lamone says she is hearing of long lines at some polling places in Maryland, something she attributes to “enthusiastic voters.”

Maryland voters are deciding whether Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump will win the state’s 10 electoral votes. The state’s congressional seats are also on the ballot, with all incumbents seeking re-election. Voters also will pick the replacement for one of the state’s most popular politicians: Barbara Mikulski, who is retiring after 30 years in the U.S. Senate.

Maryland residents will soon decide whether Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump will win the state’s 10 electoral votes.

The state’s congressional seats are also on the ballot, with all incumbents seeking re-election.

On Tuesday, voters also will pick the replacement for one of the state’s most popular politicians: Barbara Mikulski, who is retiring after 30 years in the U.S. Senate.

Polls open across the state open at 7 a.m. Tuesday and close at 8 p.m. A record number of Maryland residents took advantage of early voting. Over eight days, more than 800,000 voters cast ballots in the state - far more than the 430,500 people who voted early in the 2012 presidential election.
