WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman David Trone (MD-06), Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (both D-MD), and Congressmen Steny Hoyer (MD-5), Dutch Ruppersberger (MD-02), John P. Sarbanes (MD-03), Anthony G. Brown (MD-04), Jamie B. Raskin (MD-08), and Kweisi Mfume (MD-07) wrote to Governor Larry Hogan today to express their concern with his plan to proceed with in-person voting for the November 3 general election. The lawmakers called on Governor Hogan to rescind his directive and issue new guidance to maximize safety and voter participation. Under Governor Hogan’s announced plan, all in-person voting locations will be open and voters would have to request an absentee ballot through the Board of Elections to vote by mail. While they agree that limited polling locations should be available for Marylanders needing to vote in-person, the Delegation is concerned that there are not enough resources to sufficiently open and staff all polling locations.
