Wouldn't you think Gov. Martin O'Malley would hold a press conference to announce specific steps being taken to ensure the integrity of the ballot box given what is expected to be a close gubernatorial race? The election is just days away.
But I guess that is too much to expect from Mr. O'Malley, who along with Democratic legislators opposes voter ID laws in Maryland despite a highly mobile population and thousands of undocumented immigrants.
Sovereignty is a fundamental element of democracy in which you can only vote in a particular jurisdiction if you reside there and are a citizen. You can only vote in Baltimore City if you are a city resident and you can only vote in Maryland if you are a Maryland resident.
And whether you vote for a Republican, Democrat or write-in candidate, you need to be assured that your vote will be counted as you cast it.
