    Some Maryland voters hit a snag when they went to cast their vote for Tuesday's primary.

    Nine precincts in Montgomery County reported errors with electronic poll books used to look up voter names. At one Bethesda polling place, 50 people had to vote on provisional paper ballots by 9 a.m. Election workers were requesting more paper ballots.

    Maryland Board of Elections spokeswoman Nikki Charlson says the problem is limited to a few precincts. Voting has been smooth elsewhere.

    Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to chose candidates for governor, attorney general and various state and local offices.

    In the Democratic primary for governor, voters will choose between Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Douglas Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur.

    Brown rallied with supporters Monday night at his campaign headquarters in Largo, urging them to keep working until the end. Gansler was knocking on doors Monday night and then attended a lacrosse game with his youngest son.

    There are four candidates in the Republican gubernatorial primary. They are Harford County Executive David Craig, Del. Ronald George, Anne Arundel County businessman Larry Hogan and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar.
