Select your Candidate: Maryland


Okay, so Virginia voters have an option if they can’t make it to the polls on Tuesday. What about Maryland? In some ways your options are more flexible. Maryland opened the option of absentee voting to everyone, in no small part a reaction to the debacle of Liebold touch-screen machines. So now you can request an absentee ballot right up until 8pm the day of the election itself.

Someone’s got to go in person to the appropriate local Maryland elections board office but it doesn’t necessarily have to be you – you can send an ‘agent’ if you’re housebound or not free the times they’re open. Grab the late absentee form here and fill it out, then get it to that local office.

Do that and you get the ballot, which has to go right back to the same spot. So you can do the same thing as Virginia voters and just submit it right then or send it US mail postmarked on or before election day, the 12th.

If you can’t find some way to make that work out then, quite frankly, I thank the stars you won’t be having a part in deciding the direction of our country. And you should probably keep the cork on the fork lest you hurt yourself.
