Maryland: 6% of precints observed, all 6% had e-voting problems..

Common Ground Common Sense

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - An organization that put more than 400 poll watchers in Maryland precincts on election day reported Tuesday that its volunteers found scattered problems with the state's electronic voting machines.

Among the problems were machines that crashed, incorrect ballots and touch-screens that failed to work properly.

Since the TrueVoteMD had poll watchers in only about 6 percent of precincts, the 201 machine-related problems they reported 'really represent a small part of what probably happened that day,' said Linda Schade, a founder of the group.

TrueVoteMD presented its report and a series of recommendations for improving the administration of elections to the State Board of Elections."
