Safe Travels, Schools, State Song, & More! — July 29, 2020
- Ignoring advice from local and national election experts– this creates the unnecessary burden of adapting to another method of voting. Unless Gov. Hogan makes a change, this will be the third voting method in the past three elections.
- Requiring that every in-person polling place be used means that sites closed since March must reopen their doors to thousands of strangers.
- Scrambling to recruit election judges is the top focus of our local elections staffers. Many poll workers have already indicated that they will not return. This will require extra training, resources, and money. If they fall short, lines could be very long.
- Playing into the White House’s false narrative that mail-in voting leads to fraud (which has been completely debunked by every credible study)– Hogan has put inaccurate Republican talking points about voting by mail above the safety of Marylanders.
Please consider requesting a mail-in ballot for the upcoming election SOON. Let me warn you that the process is surprisingly cumbersome; I’m working to simplify it– but don’t delay!
