WASHINGTON -- Democratic voters overwhelmingly chose Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown to be their nominee for governor on the November ballot.
Brown beat out Attorney General Doug Gansler, state Del. Heather Mizeur and three other candidates in the Democratic primary, winning 51 percent of the votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
Gansler had 24 percent and Mizeur won 22 percent of votes cast as results continued to come in.
Absentee and provisional ballots have not yet been counted.
Larry Hogan won the GOP nomination with 43 percent of the votes, beating David Craig, Ron George and Charles Lollar.
Montgomery County, which reported poll book problems earlier in the day, was slow to report votes cast Tuesday at the polls, but with 100 percent of the county's precincts reporting, County Executive Ike Leggett won renomination with 45 percent of the vote.
The state's eight members of Congress all won their contests and will be on the November ballot seeking another two-year term.
General Assembly seats were also up for election.
Voters kicked Del. Don Dwyer out of office. His Anne Arundel County district gave more votes to five other candidates than the Pasadena Republican, who has served in the House since 2003.
Former Prince George's Del. Tiffany Alston is also losing her bid to take back her seat.

WASHINGTON -- Technical problems cropped up at a dozen polling places Tuesday morning in Montgomery County.
Poll workers were unable to access the electronic voter registration record, forcing some voters to cast provision ballots.
Montgomery County Board of Elections Spokeswoman Marjorie Roher says technicians have fixed the problem at eight locations and expect to soon finish their work.
"We would anticipate that within the next hour we should have all polling places, those final four, back up and running with the poll books," Roher says.
Where electronic books have failed, poll workers have relied on paper copies of voter registration records. Roher says provisional ballots will be counted in the final election tall once they are certified.
