After handing over 31,000 voter registration forms to the Maryland Republican Party since April, the head of the state Board of Election Laws thinks enough is enough.Gene M. Raynor yesterday cut off the flow of forms to the Republicans, citing a cost to the state of $75 per 1,000 and no evidence that the forms are being filled out."I don't see any return on them," Raynor complained. "I will go anywhere in the state to register 2,000 people or two people, but this is ridiculous."But Joyce L. Terhes, who heads the Republican Party and the voter registration drive that's using up the forms at a hefty clip, said she suspects Raynor, an appointee of Gov. William Donald Schaefer, and Democrats in general are nervous about GOP registration gains.

MIAMI - Not a single ballot has been counted in the presidential election, yet Florida is already teeming with lawsuits charging the state and its county elections supervisors with voter disenfranchisement, a legal muddle that will likely grow worse before Election Day. Yesterday, the state Supreme Court heard arguments in a suit seeking to require election officials to count provisional ballots regardless of where they are cast. And Tuesday, labor unions and voting-rights groups sued to stop the disqualification of more than 10,000 incomplete registration forms in Florida, accusing the state of overly restrictive rules that disproportionately hurt minority voters.

The more than 1 million vehicle registration renewal forms being sent to Maryland motorists over the next year will be accompanied by something extra - ads for a free oil change and $25 off on an eye exam. The advertising packets are part of an agreement between two state agencies and a Waltham, Mass.-based company that saves the Motor Vehicle Administration $100,000 a year and helps the Department of Business and Economic Development promote in-state tourism. Imagitas Inc. has taken over the printing and mailing of the MVA's vehicle registration forms in exchange for the right to include advertisements in the envelope.

BOSTON -- Jemima isn't yet 25, so she never had a chance to ''vote often and early for James Michael Curley,'' who died in 1958. But the crooked legend of Boston politics -- who was, not always at different times, a congressman, mayor, Massachusetts governor and prison inmate -- would surely have admired Jemima's electoral diligence in 1996.Not that Jemima went to the polls last week. She didn't even leave the house. She didn't have to. Weeks earlier, she had gotten an absentee ballot from the Board of Elections in Cleveland, Ohio.
