Regarding the Oct. 29 front-page article “Sandy adds to political turbulence”:

The unpredictable closure of early-voting polls in Maryland will prevent me and my partner from voting in this year’s historic election. I knew I would be out of town on Election Day, as would he, on work-related travel. What we couldn’t have predicted, however, is that on the days we had planned to vote early, the polls would be closed, and that by the time they had reopened, we would be gone, with no time even to file an absentee ballot, let alone to make our election wishes known in person. If Question 6 loses by two votes, blame us — and Sandy.
