Maryland early voting extended, resumes Wednesday

Maryland early voting resumes Wednesday and has been extended to make up for the two days lost to Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) said Tuesday. The state’s 46 early voting centers now will be open through Friday, and will open two hours earlier, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

O'Malley also signed an executive order extending the deadline to request
an absentee ballot by one day, to Oct. 31.

In the two days before voting was suspended, 134,256 voted across the state, according to the state’s Board of Elections. That pre-storm turnout overwhelmed election officials and caused long lines Saturday and Sunday at the early-voting centers, particularly in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, where a total of 43,629 ballots were cast.
