Md. officials probe complaints on long lines to vote

Posted: Updated:
BALTIMORE -

State officials are investigating complaints about voting problems, including long lines and registration issues.

Turnout for early voting and Election Day combined was 68 percent. This was lower than in the 2008 and 2004 elections.

But the Maryland State Board of Elections received complaints about hours-long waits the vote in some precincts. Baltimore Board of Elections Director Armstead Jones said it is too soon to say exactly what caused longer than expected waits.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore officials and the Maryland chapter of the ACLU got about 12 complaints from people who said although they had voted in 2008, their names were not listed in rolls.
