16. Text from an otherwise good bill in Md...
SECTION 2. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the State Administrator
of Elections and the Office of the Attorney General shall:
(1) review the efficacy of, and any legal impediments to, implementing a
system to allow qualified State voters to vote over the Internet;
(2) (i) consult with local election officials in Maryland to ascertain the
impact and assess any administrative challenges associated with implementing a
system of voting over the Internet; and
(ii) consult with officials in other jurisdictions in the United States and
in other countries that have implemented voting over the Internet for political
campaigns, and consult with private entities that have utilized voting over the
Internet for business purposes, to discuss their experiences with such a system;
(3) note any legal impediments to implementing a system of Internet voting
in the State and identify any changes to State statutory or constitutional law that
would be required to implement such a system;
(4) estimate the fiscal impact to the State and to the counties to implement a
system of voting over the Internet; and
(5) on or before December 31, 2010, submit a report of findings and
recommendations to the Governor, and, in accordance with 21246 of the State
Government Article, to the General Assembly.

I should crosspost this to the Md. forum.

While it's not an implementation of internet voting, from inside the tent it looks like a camel nose.
