Baltimore will pay city police overtime to collect and transport flash drives containing vote counts on election night next month in hopes of avoiding a situation similar to the July primary when multiple drives were misplaced. Armstead Jones, the city’s election director, announced the policy change during a committee meeting of the Baltimore City Council Thursday to discuss issues that arose during the primary. Then, election results for 12 city precincts were delayed by about 24 hours after some of the drives containing vote counts were temporarily misplaced.
