State Adds Ballot Drop Off Locations in Baltimore City, Will Consider Expanding In-Person Voting

ballot-32201_1280The Maryland Board of Elections today announced that it will expand the number of ballot drop off locations in Baltimore City from 5 to 15 for the June 2 presidential primary and will consider expanding the number in-person voting centers. The Board also announced it will launch a full review of its ballot mailing vendor’s performance immediately after the June 2 election.

“We are extremely disappointed that our ballot mailing vendor failed to deliver ballots on schedule and failed to notify us about their delay,” said Maryland Administrator of Elections Linda Lamone. “We will conduct a thorough review of their performance after the election. Despite this delay, ballots are being delivered daily to eligible voter addresses on file in Baltimore and Maryland. We are confident eligible voters will receive their ballots in time to cast their votes in the June 2 primary.”

As previously reported on Conduit Street, Governor Larry Hogan last month approved a plan to conduct Maryland’s June 2 presidential primary election primarily via mail-in ballots, with limited locations to submit completed ballots at designated drop-off locations or to vote in-person on election day.

According to a press release:

The Board also announced it ordered an additional 10 ballot drop off boxes for Baltimore and will consider opening new in-person voting centers for Election Day when the Board convenes today at 4:30 pm. The locations for all 15 ballot drop off locations are listed below. Five are available now and the Board will announce later this week when the additional 10 are open.
