Resignation of Md. election board member underscores need to be nonpartisan

January 17, 2024

Sections 2 and 3 of Article 4 in the Bylaws of the Maryland State Board of Elections make it clear what type of behavior is considered acceptable for the men and women who serve on the five-member panel, which supervises how elections are handled in the Free State. A board member can’t, for example, manage someone’s campaign or serve in a political party post. He or she can attend a political event but can’t publicly indicate they are an elections board member while there. One can sign a petition but not solicit signatures.
