Voters expect elections will be fair

Given all the discrepancies in the Baltimore City primary election, state elections administrator Linda H. Lamone needs to do what is right to ensure a fair election ("A welcome review of Baltimore's primary," May 14).

She should declare any polls with discrepancies invalid and insist the Baltimore City election board find a way to have a revote.

Polls had more votes than checked-in voters, provisional ballots suddenly appeared days later and the vote totals changed the next day without any additional information. Candidates from both parties have complained about both local and federal elections and they feel cheated.

If nothing else the Federal Election Commission should get involved, and if Ms. Lamone fails to act this would be the time for Gov. Larry Hogan to remove her from office and replace her with someone who will protect every person's right to expect a fair election.
