Early Voting Turnout Breaks Record But That's Not Saying Much

Polls open at 7 AM tomorrow for voters to have their say in Maryland’s primary. But already, more than 140,000 people have voted. That's record turnout for early voting – nearly twice as many voters cast early ballots this year than in 2012. But WYPR's Karen Hostler tells Christopher Connelly the numbers are still low.
