Md. puts absentee ballots online

By Washington Post editors

Maryland is becoming the first state in the nation to make absentee ballots available online.

The University of Maryland’s Center for American Politics and Citizenship announced it is making the ballots available on Friday, in a partnership with the Maryland State Board of Elections. The ballots will be available on the Maryland Elections Center website.

The On-Demand Ballot System automatically creates a document including the ballot file for the voter, instructions and an oath of absentee voting. It assigns a security number and creates a personalized mailing label with a barcode to ensure only one ballot is counted per person.

I love this, I'm proud of Maryland for being the first to set something like this up.
