Thanks for posting. I was an election judge in Maryland last Tuesday. I would find it interesting in the threads on suspected voter fraud to hear from the judges that worked in those particular states how their systems actually work.

There is alot of misinformed speculation because there are different systems in different states.

Maryland uses the computer touchscreens with memory cards, and provisional ballots for “problem voters”.

Meant to say Baltimore County. Don’t know about Maryland as a whole.

“One thing I always notice, and which I like about visiting polling places, is the faintly solemn tone of the proceeding. People take voting seriously, and it has the feel of a civic ritual. Not to the level of religion, nor to the level of a jury, but above the ordinary course of business. There is nothing quite like it and I hope it never changes”


My thoughts too...

...and an excellent argument against making early voting by mail too easy.

Absentee ballot with a reason is OK, but just mailing it in sort of degrades the voting process.
