ISSUE:

Elections officials across Maryland faced a bevy of problems on Primary Day. In Anne Arundel, at least 100 vacancies for election judges were unfilled, and many judges who participated lacked the proper training to operate the electronic voting machines. Those two factors contributed to the temporary mishandling of memory cards holding 6,000 votes and sparked allegations of unrecorded votes. County and state elections officials have since expressed confidence in the electronic voting system and said many of the difficulties will be resolved for the general election Nov. 7.

YOUR VIEW:

Do you have confidence in these voting machines and the ability of Anne Arundel elections officials to correctly operate them Nov. 7? If not, what should the county do to improve the vote counting this time? Tell us what you think at arundel.speakout@baltsun.com by Thursday. Please keep your responses short and include your name, address and phone number. A selection will be published next Sunday.
