Vote on paper even in MD

Many MD voters know that we have those stupid touch screen voting machines, and if you're nervous about them, you're right to be.

Here's the MD Board of Elections web site. It says you can request an absentee ballot up until October 28th.

You have to sign a statement saying you will not be able to vote in your precinct on election day. Since I'll be a poll worker and likely assigned to another precinct all day, no problem for me.

If you vote by absentee ballot, I would urge you to take the time to actually go to the board of elections, apply for the ballot in person, vote it there, and turn it in. No chance of getting lost in the mail that way.

Anyway, I just voted.
