Election Officials: 250,000 New Voters Expected

Maryland election officials said yesterday that they expect 250,000 new voters to register by next month's deadline for the presidential election and are making preparations for long lines at the polls on Nov. 4.

Hundreds of new electronic poll books will be on hand to identify voters, thousands of election judges have been hired and 750 additional touch-screen voting machines have been leased to avoid long waits, elections chief Linda H. Lamone told the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee at a briefing.

Vans loaded with extra voting machines will be ready to drive to congested precincts, Lamone said. The preparations should ensure that each machine serves no more than 200 people. Voters have requested more than 600,000 absentee ballots, and election officials said they expect 3.45 million people to be registered by the deadline of 9 p.m. Oct. 14.

Does it bother you that the market is down over 300 points today and the Montgomery County elected officials are planning to give us a huge property tax increase next year after a 14% property tax increase this year and the largest tax increase in state history?

If so, vote your self some help by supporting Question B on the November ballot. It makes it more difficult for the county council to exceed the voter-approved charter property tax limit next year. Vote your pocket book. Vote for Question B! Save Our Homes!

Des it bother you that the market is down over 300 points today and yet Montgomery County elected officials are planning to give us a huge property tax increase next year after a 14% increase in property taxes this year AND the largest tax increase in state history?

If so, vote yourself a favor in November by supporting Question B which makes it more difficult for the elected officials to override the voter-approved charter property tax limit. Vote FOR B! Save Our Homes!
