The red-brick warehouse that houses Baltimore’s elections information and equipment is over 50 years old and, by many accounts, is falling apart. Parts of the ceiling are sagging, or have holes. At least one of the metal doors used for unloading equipment has rusted shut. Others have to be pried open with a steel bar. The warehouse, despite boasting 40,000 square feet, is packed with thousands of voting machines, ballot carts, and provisional ballot applications. There is no space to train election judges.
