Five Things to Watch on Election Day in Maryland

Voters across Maryland will cast ballots for president, Senate and House of Representatives today. In Baltimore, voters will elect a mayor, comptroller and 15 City Council members. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Here are some things to keep an eye on:

Battleground states: Watch results in Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. The polarizing presidential contest between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump likely will be decided in these states.
