Maryland early voting law fails court test

"Weeks before an election that promises a bruising finish to a U.S. Senate primary, a Maryland judge overturned legislation allowing for early voting. The successful plaintiffs argued that early voting violated the Maryland Constitution, which states a specific single-day occurrence.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Ronald Silkworth, a Democrat appointee, angered party members with his decision. State AG Joseph Curran’s office quickly turned to the Maryland Court of Appeals, which is expected to rule by month’s end.

Other Free State Democrats expressed disdain as well. State Senator Lisa Gladden opined, “A constitution is a living, breathing document. If you always literally interpret the Constitution you get strange results, like ‘all men are created equal,’ so what do you do with the women?” (Memo to Gladden: “All men are created equal” would be a phrase found in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.)"
