The Howard County Education Association has endorsed De Lacy, Gertler and Scott for the board.
Also specific to Howard County on ballots tomorrow will be five amendments to the county charter, most notably a proposed change to the number of signatures required for referendum.
Currently, a petition must have five percent of the county's registered voters, with at least 1,500 and a maximum of 5,000. The proposed change would require that petitioners obtain at least five percent of the Howard County votes cast during the gubernatorial election, with no minimum or maximum.
The change would ensure that the percentage of required signatures for referendum will always be reflective of the county's population. But it could make it more difficult to get a referendum on the ballot, because the number of signatures would most likely increase over time.
Voters also will see seven statewide ballot questions Tuesday, including two much-debated questions, one addressing same-sex marriage and another expanding gambling.
A vote for Question 6 would allow same-sex couples to marry in Maryland beginning Jan.1.
A vote for Question 7 would allow casinos to add table games and the state to add another casino site, most likely in Prince George's County.
Question 4 asks voters whether they approve of undocumented immigrants, who have graduated from a Maryland high school, becoming eligible for in-state tuition rates at state community colleges. Question 5 asks voters to approve the new congressional districting plan, which was already challenged in federal court, but upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in June.
Dependent upon where they live, voters have one congressional race they will be deciding.
