Page Left Out of Some Montgomery, Prince George's Absentee Ballots

Less than 20 voters were affected, according to the governor's office.

A small number of Prince George's and Montgomery County voters were sent absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 election that are missing a second page, the governor's office announced Wednesday.

The omitted section contains and state ballot questions 4 to 7, which address key issues such as the legalization of gay marriage, a proposed expansion of gambling in Maryland, and the Dream Act. Several county-level referenda were also left out.

In a statement, Gov. Martin O'Malley said the number of affected voters was less than 20.

"The Board of Elections is working to investigate what caused this issue," O'Malley added.

Voters who requested absentee ballots are urged to check them and ensure that a second page is included. Residents with an incomplete ballot should call 1-800-222-8683 to request a new one.

Hi Jane-- It was both sides (front/back) of the same sheet, which are collectively labeled by the Board of Elections as Page 2. Slightly confusing, I know. --John

Just another ALL TIME LOW from OWE MALLEY who will do and say anything to push his OWN agenda thru! If passed, the State of Maryland will become the worst in the NATION!

George Bush asked me to thank you for not blaming this on him.

The important thing about this story is to figure out a way to blame it on Martin O'Malley and Barack Obama. Everyone knows governors and the President of the United States personally send these ballots out. Who else would do such a horrible thing? Please vote for the party that nominates old men who think rape is not a big deal. They have your best interests at heart.

I agree with you 100% send the illegals back to where they came from, it is against the law to break into some ones home, business etc... It is against the law to break into our country too. As part of the dream act they are to graduate from high school, so they are stealing my tax dollars again by going to our schools etc... Ah what the EF just open the borders and let everyone come on in and we can be third world country in no time. To be honest I think we are already the worst state in the nation, we have the worst state government that is for sure.
