It appears that many residents of Anne Arundel County chose Saturday to take advantage of early voting.
At the West County Area Library in Odenton, voters stretched more than 100 deep shortly after noon and parking spaces were scarce. Voters and library patrons were seen parking across the street at the M&T Bank and walking across Annapolis Road.
Long lines at polling places appeared to be the norm, with long lines reported at centers in Annapolis and places throughout Baltimore County.
The library will be open for early voting until 8 p.m. Saturday.
Early voting continues every day through Nov. 1, but residents are closely watching to see if the impact of Hurricane Sandy will force polling places to close early next week.
