BALTIMORE (AP) — A Prince George’s County elections judge was told not to keep his personal sample ballot on his clipboard as he worked at a polling place in the county.

Alisha Alexander, the county’s elections administrator, said Tuesday the judge removed it once he was asked to do so, and he was not found to be promoting Democrats.

Separately, Maryland Republican Party Chair Audrey Scott asked voters to double check their ballots, after more than 30 voters said voting machines selected Democratic candidates instead of Republican ones.

Ross Goldstein, a state board of elections official, says it’s not uncommon to have a small number of errors, compared to the number of people who have voted. He says that’s why ballots can’t be cast until they are reviewed.
