No Funding for New Voting System in Governor’s Budget

As details begin to unfold, it was reported today in the Baltimore Sun and by the Associated Press, that funds were not included in the Governor’s FY 2011 budget for the purchase of a new voting system.

Some state-level spending decisions assist local governments. State budget chief T. Eloise Foster confirmed that Maryland would defer purchases of new voting machines, saving $9 million in state money as well as $9 million in matching funds from counties.
