State Board of Elections Orders Baltimore Election Results De-Certified

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two weeks after Maryland’s primary election, the State Board of Elections has ordered the Baltimore primary electionresults be de-certified, according to board officials.

This puts the results, which were certified Monday, in question.

A precinct-by-precinct review of voter irregularities has already begun.

“We’ve started that process this morning and it continues through tomorrow,” said Baltimore Elections Director Armstead Jones. “And we are confident once it’s done, all of the paper work is put on the table, that we will be fine.”

Linda H. Lamone, State Board of Elections administrator, tells WJZ that the de-certification was called for after officials found 80 provisional ballots that had not been counted after Monday’s certification.
