The presidential election of 2012 and Maryland's gubernatorial election of 2014 have much in common rhetorically in terms of their approaches to issues and spin, the two key components of political persuasion. The 2012 presidential election pitted a likable African-American Democratic incumbent president against a white, older Republican who had been out of politics for years. The 2014 Maryland gubernatorial race features a likable incumbent African-American Democratic lieutenant governor against a white, older Republican who has been out of politics for years.

In response to the Federal Emergency Management Agency's decision to deny flood benefits to Eastern Shore communities, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman said that "we cannot forget those impacted by Hurricane Sandy" ("Inspectors to evaluate Eastern Shore homes, businesses for Sandy damage," Dec. 8). We also shouldn't forget that there's a gubernatorial election in 2014 - an election in which Mr. Ulman is probably going to seek the Democratic Party nomination. That may explain why he's opining on something so removed from his official duties in Howard County.

On September 10, 1978, two days before the Maryland primary election, The Baltimore Sun published a poll showing Lt. Gov. Blair Lee III - who was acting governor in the wake of Gov. Marvin Mandel's political corruption conviction the previous year - leading his nearest Democratic gubernatorial rivals. Mr. Lee was ahead of Baltimore County Executive Theodore G. Venetoulis by 13 points and former state Senator and Transportation Secretary Harry R. Hughes by 14 points, with 22 percent of the primary voters still undecided.

Sauerbrey, who lost a close election to Gov. Parris N. Glendening in 1994.

The Baltimore City Election Change Coalition, a citywide coalition of nine organizations, supports changing the date of the Baltimore City primary election to coincide with the gubernatorial election cycle ("The right time for city elections," March 22). Doing so will save money - nearly $3.7 million in the city and $270,000 for the state. Many politicians support changing the election cycle to align with the presidential cycle. But there are a number of reasons why the coalition favors the gubernatorial over the presidential cycle.

Real reforms needed to streamline city and state political systems The Sun's article on moving Baltimore City's elections to presidential election years notes that this switch could save city government $500,000 ("City makes case for changing primary," March 1). It neglected to mention that moving city elections to gubernatorial election years (as was first proposed) would save the city twice as much money. This better alternative was not selected because it would preclude city elected officials from running for state office in "safe" election years, without having to give up city elective office.

Long lines that caused voters in Maryland and several other states to wait hours at polling places on Election Day are prompting a push for new laws to speed the process of casting a ballot. Lawmakers in Congress and the Maryland General Assembly say they are considering a broad range of ideas, such as increasing the number of early voting centers available in high-population jurisdictions and offering federal grants to states that find ways to streamline the voting process. Maryland election officials are investigating complaints about wait times in the Nov. 6 election, including reports that some people waited for hours despite lower-than-expected turnout.

For the first time in more than a decade, Baltimore County's land use and zoning policies seem to be under serious scrutiny. The decisions of the County Council over the coming weeks - and how the community responds to those decisions - could result in significant changes in Baltimore County's comprehensive zoning process and even reshape the balance of power among Baltimore County's elected officials. As a former state delegate and former member of the Baltimore County Planning Board, I know that when communities feel shut out of the political process, their blocked energy needs to be expended in other ways, frequently with negative results for incumbent politicians.

Since 1794, the voters of Charm City have had the same political reality as most: a four-year ritual of choosing the most qualified mayoral and City Council candidates vying for their support, to serve a prescribed term understood by those very voters to be of a certain length. The reality that if you pick an official who does not live up to your expectations you would have to live with that public servant representing your interests for a four-year period has always been recognized and understood.

Some Baltimore activists are fighting against a charter amendment that, if approved by voters in November, would align Baltimore's elections with the presidential election cycle - and in the process give the mayor and most of the city's other elected officials an extra year in office. The advocates are absolutely right that the proposal is not the ideal solution to the city's problems of unnecessary election expenses and low turnout. But given a recent state law change that controls the timing of Baltimore's primary election, voters should approve the charter amendment.

Republican Daniel J. Earnshaw was carried off the state election board last week, feet first.And, typical of the last seven months of his four-year term, Mr. Earnshaw went out complaining bitterly that November's gubernatorial election was "stolen" by Democrats supporting Gov. Parris N. Glendening.Of course, the election already has been investigated by supporters of Republican Ellen R. Sauerbrey, who lost to Mr. Glendening by a mere 5,993 votes. A judge considered their allegations during a five-day hearing in January and found no evidence of fraud.

Lawyers for Gov.-elect Parris N. Glendening and for state and local election officials asked a state court yesterday to throw out Republican Ellen R. Sauerbrey's challenge to the Nov. 8 gubernatorial election.Mr. Glendening's lawyers argued that the Sauerbrey forces missed deadlines to challenge the qualifications of voters before the election, to challenge voters at the polls on Election Day and to challenge disputed absentee ballots after the election. They therefore cannot raise such objections now, the lawyers said.
