WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)--The Maryland State Board of Elections posted on their website that early voting centers will be closed on Monday, October 29th because of Hurricane Sandy and what she could bring.
Earlier this week Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) declared a State of Emergency in Maryland because of the storm which is expected to bring heavy wind and rain.
On Friday, the Governor's Office warned Hurricane Sandy could impact early voting, "The Election Law provides that "[i]n the event of a state of emergency, declared by the Governor in accordance with the provisions of law, that interferes with the electoral process, the emergency proclamation may: (1) provide for the postponement, until a specific date, of the election in part or all of the State; (2) specify alternate voting locations; or (3) specify alternate voting systems." Md. Code Ann., Election Law Article, Sec. 8-103(a)."
