*'''Absentee Voting''': The Maryland Constitution currently authorizes the enactment of legislation to provide for absentee voting only by “qualified voters … who are absent at the time of any election … and for voting by other qualified voters who are unable to vote personally ….” (Art. I, § 3). This constitutional amendment would expressly authorize the enactment of legislation to allow a qualified voter who chooses - for whatever reason - to vote by absentee ballot.

*'''Early Voting and Voting Outside the Election District or Ward in Which the Voter Resides''': The Maryland Constitution also currently designates the Tuesday after the first Monday in November as the calendar date for general elections (See, e.g., Art. II, § 2; Art. XV, § 7; Art. XVII, § 2; et al) and specifies that a qualified voter is entitled to vote “ … in the ward or election district in which … [the voter] resides ….” (Art. I, § 1). This constitutional amendment would expressly authorize the enactment of new legislation to allow qualified voters:
