The election day polls in Port Deposit opened later than expected this year.
The May 9 election started about 45 minutes after the noon start time because election officials were locked out of the polling place, the downtown Water Witch Fire Company Station. One of the election judges inadvertently closed the door, which unlocks with a security fob. Election officials were putting a sign up when the door closed. A fire company member responded and opened the door to the building.
