Upcoming Maryland State Board of Elections Vote

 Means High Possibility of Fraud

System Ripe for Fraud, Experts Warn — Election Integrity Maryland Calls for Immediate Re-Evaluation of Online Voting Implementation to Preserve Honest Elections

[Rockville, Maryland] [April 23, 2014] – Despite overwhelming evidence and warnings from security experts, the Maryland State Board of Elections appears set to vote for implementation of a new Online Ballot Delivery System.  The Montgomery County Republican Party hereby states their strong opposition to any new online system while such serious and consequential security measures are lacking.

Election Integrity Maryland has recently issued a Press Release, in part, as follows:

“Election Integrity Maryland, one of the Mid-Atlantic’s leading election integrity organizations, announces today that it has urged the Maryland Board of Elections to re-evaluate its stance on online voting procedures and systems in wake of its upcoming State Board Meeting, set for 2pm on April 24, 2014, in Annapolis.  At this meeting, the body is set to certify its current Online Ballot Delivery System, which has a high potential to open the state’s electoral processes to large-scale error and fraud.  Stemming from significant concern from the technical and political experts as to the vulnerability of the current system, Election Integrity Maryland calls for an urgent rejection of the vote to certify the Online Ballot Delivery System and subsequent review of its overall online voting systems in a critical effort to preserve freedom and equality in the state’s electoral procedures.”

The full release from Election Integrity Maryland can be viewed at The Blog for www.entrepreneursforfreeenterprise.org.  Concerned Maryland voters are strongly encouraged to contact the Board of Elections at info.sbe@maryland.gov before noon tomorrow to voice your concerns.
