Annapolis, MD—Today, Joe Sandler, counsel to the Maryland Democratic Party, issued the following statement on the unprecedented turnout in Prince George’s County and reports that several polling locations in the county have run out of paper ballots:
“Due to unprecedented turnout in Prince George’s County, several polling locations have run low on ballots. All voters should be aware that the Prince George’s County Board of Elections is required, by law, to keep all affected polling locations open as long as required for all voters in line at 8:00 p.m. to cast their ballot. We urge anyone facing difficulties voting to contact the Maryland Democratic Party’s voter hotline at 1-888-678-VOTE.
“Maryland Democrats believe that every voter has a right to vote and we’re committed to fighting to ensure that every voter is afforded an opportunity to cast their ballot today.”
