ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Senate Republican caucus says it’s opposed to holding a preferred mail-in election in November.
The caucus sent a letter Thursday to the Maryland State Board of Elections.
The letter was sent after two leading Maryland Democrats recommended earlier this week for the board to prepare for a “hybrid mail-in preferred election” due to the coronavirus.
The GOP caucus cited errors and oversights in the state’s June 2 primary, which was conducted mostly by mail with some in-person voting.
The caucus is recommending in-person voting for November.
They say people who are uncomfortable or unable to vote in person due to COVID-19 can vote by requesting absentee ballots.
