Play associated audio

At least one page has turned up missing in about 20 absentee ballots distributed in Montgomery and Prince George's counties for the upcoming Nov. 6 election.

The questions, on the second page of the ballot include hot-button issues such as same-sex marriage, gambling expansion, the state's congressional redistricting map and in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants.

Election officials say anyone with an absentee ballot in Maryland should check to make sure they have a complete ballot with a "page 2" that includes questions 4 through 7, as well as any of the local county-related questions.

Meanwhile, the State Board of Elections is investigating the cause of the missing page.
