Germantown, Gaithersburg, Wheaton lead turnout in Early Voting

Germantown, Gaithersburg (Bohrer Park), and Wheaton lead turnout in Early Voting so far. With one day left for in person Early Voting, it looks like there were not enough people willing to vote in person in 2020 to beat 2016 Early Voter Turnout.
