Election Board to report to Governor Hogan Friday with recommendations

July 2nd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Maryland's State Board of Elections met Tuesday to decide its recommendations regarding how the November 3 election should be held. The Board is expected to issue a report with its recommendations to Gov. Larry Hogan by Friday, July 3rd .

On June 26, the Maryland Association of Election Officials wrote the Board and other state officials "to urge that the 2020 Presidential General Election by conducted primarily by mail, with more in-person vote centers available than in the Primary Election." The letter specifically recommended that ballots be mailed directly to voters, rather than requiring voters to use the absentee ballot application process, because "the [Local Boards of Elections] do not have enough personnel to managing processing all of the requests, in addition to receiving ballots." The letter said requiring applications "would jeopardize the entire process" of administering the election.

However, when the State Board met on Tuesday, it did not endorse the MAEO recommendation of mailing ballots to voters.

    If you can stampede Lowe’s, Martin’s, liquor stores and wait in line for ice cream you can wait in line to vote or vote early. Absentee ballots are an option.
