Page Left Out of Some Prince George's Absentee Ballots

Less than 20 voters were affected, according to the governor's office.

 

A small number of Prince George's and Montgomery County voters were sent absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 election that are missing a second page, the governor's office announced Wednesday.

The omitted section contains and state ballot questions 4 to 7, which address key issues such as the legalization of gay marriage, a proposed expansion of gambling in Maryland, and the Dream Act. Several county-level referenda were also left out.

In a statement, Gov. Martin O'Malley said the number of affected voters was less than 20.

"The Board of Elections is working to investigate what caused this issue," O'Malley added.

Voters who requested absentee ballots are urged to check them and ensure that a second page is included. Residents with an incomplete ballot should call 1-800-222-8683 to request a new one.
