Absentee Ballots In Maryland Counties Missing Pages

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.
