My article on HoCo election with over 3000 readers

I looked at my web stats. One article talking about 2016 Howard County Charter Amendments got over 3000 reader. It is amazing. I was trying to figure it out why. Partially there were not so many other articles talking about these two important ballot initiatives. If you searched online, my article came first.

For Question A, I am for it. There were 74382 Yes and 67408 No. The difference is 6974 votes, around 5% of total votes.

For Question B, I am against it. There were 83992 Yes and 50306 No. The difference is 33686 votes, around 25% of total votes.

The really surprising facts now are the early voting, which is almost close to 50% now.
