ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland’s elections administrator says the first day of early voting is going smoothly so far.

Linda Lamone says all 69 early voting centers opened on time Thursday, and there have been no reports of problems. People were lined up at some voting centers before they opened at 8 a.m.

More than 96,000 people had voted as of 5 p.m. Of them, about 64,300 were Democrats and 21,600 were Republicans. That compares to 10,235 voters registered with other parties.

Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1 in Maryland. There are about 2.1 million registered Democrats and 1 million Republicans.

Early voting polls will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until Nov. 3. Voters can cast ballots in an early voting center in their county.

Election Day is Nov. 8.
