The state of Wisconsin recently went ahead with its primary at polling places as planned, forcing many residents to choose between protecting their personal health and exercising their right to vote. No American should have to make that choice. Here in Maryland, we won’t have to.
Unlike leaders of some other states, Gov. Larry Hogan took early, decisive action, postponing Maryland’s primary election to June 2, giving officials time to set up procedures for most voters to vote by mail. The special election to replace the late Rep. Elijah Cummings in Maryland’s 7th Congressional District will go ahead on April 28, also using primarily mailed-in ballots.
