Some Maryland Voters See 'Democratic' At Top of Ballots

Tuesday, 05 November 2002 12:00 AM

Elections officials decided to keep the ballots as is and instead post notices that read:

"The ballot is correct and your vote will count. This ballot contains all candidates and questions. However, the heading on the instruction page contains the word 'Democratic.' This word should not have appeared on the instruction page and this line should have been blank."

Elections official Marjorie Roher was quoted as saying, "At no time has [the appearance of the word on the ballot] affected the voting or tabulation of the results."

In Maryland, Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend faces off in a close race with Republican challenger Robert Ehrlich, Jr.

If elected, Townsend would be the first female governor of Maryland. If Ehrlich is elected, he would be the first Republican governor since Spiro Agnew left office in 1969.
