November 11, 2009

HOWARD COUNTY, Maryland: The Howard County, Maryland, Circuit Court will hear a case on November 13, 2009 pertaining to whether or not petition signatures in the state are invalid if the signature doesn’t exactly match the name of the registered voter in records.

Norman v Howard County, 13C-09-76855 began in Howard County when a petition for referendum on zoning surfaced. The Howard County Board of Elections eliminated two-thirds of the signatures when it was reviewed for a second time. The signatures were reviewed twice due to another case in Montgomery County that stated that referendum signatures are to be deemed invalid if they do not exactly match the name in registration records.[1]
