Cassilly, Healey Take Lead: Harford County Primary Election Results 2022
HARFORD COUNTY, MD — Harford County voters in some cases are voting for change, evidenced by the preliminary results from the primary election. Mail-in ballots will begin being counted on Thursday and could take up to July 29 to process, so all results are unofficial.
More than 213,000 mail-in ballots were received statewide as of Monday, according to Maryland Matters, which reported that represented about 5 percent of voters. Voters had until Tuesday to submit them, so the number is likely higher.
While all results are preliminary, Harford County State's Attorney Albert Peisinger seemed to be defeated by challenger Alison Healey, who received about 69.5 percent of the votes versus his 30.5 percent during early voting and in-person voting on Tuesday.
Harford County Councilman Robert Wagner appeared to be defeated by Jessica Boyle-Tsottles, who received about 54.1 percent of the votes versus Wagner's 40.1 percent in District E for the Republican nomination. On the Democratic side, Harford County Board of Education President Rachel Gauthier appeared to secure the Democratic nomination, coming out with 62 percent of the votes versus Bill Montgomery's 38 percent in the District E race for County Council.
Bob Cassilly took the lead for the Republican nomination in the county executive race, netting nearly 62 percent of votes, while challenger Billy Boniface received nearly 38 percent. The Democratic candidate for county executive, Blane H. Miller III, ran unopposed.
