How Baltimore and Maryland votes in the Presidential election is often a foregone conclusion. 79% of voters in Baltimore City are registered as Democrats.  But there are many local offices and ballot issues that are going to be determined in today’s election as well.

Some of us will watch the results come in on our sofas at home.  Others of us will be at political parties, there are big ones planned all over the state tonight.  While some of us might elect to go to our favorite bar and drink in victory or sorrow as the results become final.

Below is a list of Baltimore establishments that encourage patrons to come in and celebrate and debate politics tonight.  There will be games, entertainment, buffets and drink specials.  And listen below to the story about two ends of the political drinking spectrum.

Some results wont be known immediately this evening, so if you have to take a cab home early and go to bed, wake up with the Morning Show on WTMD on Wednesday for more election coverage.  And be sure to vote, polls are open until 8 pm tonight.
