Happy Halloween!

Also, Happy Most Important Election We May Have in a Long Time!

As our friends from Post Typography remind us with this little animated ‘punkin PSA, the realities you wake up to the morning after Election Day next week could be scarier than anything you’re likely to experience at a party tonight.

Early voting hours were extended yesterday by Gov. Martin O’Malley, a change he ordered for Maryland’s 46 early voting locations (to make up for the cancellation of voting during storm Sandy on Monday and Tuesday.)

Today through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., voters will be able to vote. Here are the five early voting sites in Baltimore City. (To find locations elsewhere in the state, go here or call  the Maryland Board of Elections at 410-269-2840 or 800-222-8683.)

– Edmondson-Westside High School at 501 Athol Ave.
– League for People with Disabilities at 1111 E. Coldspring Lane
– St. Brigid’s Parish Center at 900 S. East Ave.
– The Maritime Industries Academy School at 5001 Sinclair Lane
– The Public Safety Training Center at Northern Parkway and Park Heights Ave.

    I’m not worried about a pumpkin. And I’m not worried about how this election ranks in importance compared with all the other elections past and future. If this election was really so important, wouldn’t we have a two party system in this city and state? What I’m concerned about is that the mayor is going to send big Jonathan Ogden after people depending on how she finds out that they vote – Worry about being punk’d, not a punkin’.

    Has anyone else noticed that every single one of Baltimore City’s early voting stations is virtually on the edge of the City?  Please view the linked map: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=218072160254445613653.0004cd704f684f41a3db7.

    For a city in which nearly 40% of households have no automobile access (either by choice or by virtue of economic necessity), I am stunned that the early voting locations are virtually inaccessible for those living in the core of Baltimore.  Was there really NO location in Mt. Vernon, Downtown, Charles Village, Bolton Hill, Barcly, Oliver, Sandtown, etc. that could serve as an early voting location?  Was there no place in or around City Hall itself that could serve as an early voting destination?

      Yep, I noticed that and wondered why. I just voted at the 1111 E. Cold Spring Lane location and there was a long line, more than 30 minute wait, with some people leaving, daunted. Staff said this was short compared to other times of day like mid-morning. Lots of busy traffic there, parking situation terrible.

       Can you still walk in to the election board and vote by absentee ballot?

        I don’t know…I’ve never heard of that before.

    • The height of the “home-away-from-home” social networking season is happening right now for Baltimore developers and a reduced flock of city officials in Las Vegas. In recent years, the International Council of Shopping Centers’ four-day RECon convention, which began yesterday, has become a magnet for local officeholders seeking to rub shoulders and share drinks with […]

    •   “Ha ha, so not a surprise.” “Shocking…not!!” We get applause but also the occasional eye-roll these days for our accountability reporting – like last week’s piece about how tax cuts promised by the mayor as a selling point for Horseshoe Baltimore probably won’t happen, thanks to the casino’s lower-than-expected revenues. We get where the […]
