BALTIMORE (WJZ) — There was a record turnout for the first day of early voting in Maryland.

As of 8:30 p.m., more than 125,702 Marylanders, including 9,539 in Baltimore, turned out for early voting. The number is expected to grow, according to our media partner, The Baltimore Sun.

“This is such a big election. I just need to get out here and vote as soon as possible,” said Mary Smallman, voter.

“It really does matter. So here I am in this long line, trying to make a difference,” said Angela Riley, voter.

The weight of the election has brought out voters across the spectrum.

“If I could go around and rap on doors, I would to pull them out to vote,” said Gloria Johnson, 91-year-old voter.

“I took this very seriously because it’s not a joke,” said Yvette Powell, first-time voter.

A record 257,000 Marylanders voted early during the primary.

“All over the country, early voting is really higher than it has been,” said Armstead Jones, Baltimore City Elections Director.

While turnout is expected to be big in Maryland, in several battleground states, it will be crucial.

The latest CBS News polls show Colorado, Iowa, Florida and North Carolina are still up in the air.

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton tried to get out the vote in North Carolina, as Donald Trump hit another hot spot — Ohio.

“I think we’ve had enough of the Clintons,” Trump said.

The presidential race is driving people to the polls.

“We’re at a point where the country can go backwards or we can go forwards,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, (D) Maryland.

The importance is causing anxiety for some voters.

“This entire election process, I’ve been on edge. And I feel like as soon as I get my vote cast, I’ll have a little bit of ease,” said Angela Murray, voter.

“I’ve done everything that I can do. Everything else is in somebody else’s hands,” said Jerome Bivens, voter.

With 13 days left, the decision is in the hands of the voters.

The polls are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Early voting in Maryland runs through November 3.

  1. Don’t forget Democrats………VOTE OFTEN AND EARLY. No ID required. Illegals vote at least three times. We should be voting if Hillary gets a lethal injection or life in prison.
