When Kirsten Johnson went to vote on East Cold Spring Lane on Friday during Maryland’s seven-day early voting period, things didn’t go as she had planned. A Roland Park resident since 2007, Johnson had received mailings from the Baltimore City Board of Elections informing her she lived in Maryland’s 41st legislative district, but a poll worker handed her a ballot for District 40. “I said, ‘Excuse me, there’s been a mistake,’” she recalled. The volunteer directed her back to the check-in table, where she showed more election volunteers her voter ID card and sample ballot, mailed to her by election officials, that all put her in District 41.
