As the State prepares to move back to a paper-based optical scan voting system from the touch screen system that is currently in place, State election officials held a public demonstration on November 13 to showcase a potential new voting system. This gave local election officials and members of the public a chance to see how the system would work, raise issues to be addressed, and discuss procedures to be put in place prior to the 2016 Presidential election.
As reported by MarylandReporter.com:
Several election officials that attended last week’s demonstration were wary about taking on a new statewide voting system. Concerns ranged from potential long lines at the polls to problems with producing multiple versions of paper ballots or not having enough time to test the new system before it goes live.
