ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On Thursday, The Anne Arundel County Board of Elections voted to add three more election day voting sites. Election Director Joe Torre recommended new sites at Laurel Racetrack, Lindale Middle School in Linthicum Heights and Van Bokkelen Elementary School in Severn.
However, The Board approved the Lindale Middle School and Van Bokkelen Elementary School sites, but rejected the Laurel Racetrack site. They also decided to replace the Laurel Racetrack site with Arnold Elementary School.
According to a release, these sites were selected by election staff because they are in areas that were underserved by the existing distribution sites.
“I want to thank all of the civic-minded residents of this county who are stepping up to help make this election fair and safe,” said County Executive Pittman. “And I want to thank our staff at the Board of Elections for doing the hard work of adding three new voting centers and securing ballot drop boxes for each."
In addition, the county is providing 32 secure ballot drop boxes, one at each of the 31 voting locations and an additional dropbox at the Board of Elections office in Glen Burnie. Dropboxes will have 24 hour security and video surveillance and will be available to accept ballots beginning October 1.
