State Board Will Consider Additional Early Voting Site in Montgomery, But Not Baltimore

There is hope still for an additional early voting site in Montgomery County after an emergency meeting of the State Board of Elections on Tuesday.

A supermajority of the state board voted to direct the county to bring additional information about adding a 12th early voting site to the state board’s next meeting on Oct. 31.

The potential 12th site – in White Oak, a lower-income, high-minority corner of the county that experienced long wait times at the polls in 2018 – had been voted down along partisan lines by the Montgomery County Board of Elections last month. One argument for the additional early voting center is that it could cut down on the long Election Day lines.

A half-dozen people came to Annapolis on Tuesday to testify in favor of or against the local board’s decision.
