Washington Post: Maryland prepares for unprecedented test of mail-in voting amid pandemic
The Maryland chapter of the watchdog group Common Cause will send scouts to the voting centers to make sure voters are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and Hogan’s orders to wear masks and remain at least six feet apart.
Activists are allowed, as usual, to campaign as long as they remain at least 100 feet from the polling center.
Joanne Antoine, executive director of Common Cause in Maryland, said she worries people who didn’t receive ballots will crowd voting centers, defeating their purpose.
“The concern is whether we will see people going to these in-person voting centers, which is what the board [of elections] was trying to avoid in the first place,” she said.
