Long Lines Form With Early Voting Underway In Maryland
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Early voting is underway in Maryland and voters can cast their ballots early now through Thursday.
This afternoon, voters stood in a line more than 2 city blocks long at Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring, Md.
In addition to voting for president and a congressional representative, voters will have some big ballot questions to consider.
Maryland residents will be deciding whether to allow same-sex marriage and whether to expand gambling to allow table games, as well as a casino in Prince George’s County.
They can also vote on whether to allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition, if they have attended a Maryland high school for three years and can demonstrate that their parents have paid income taxes.
Voters also are being asked if they approve of the state’s congressional redistricting map.
