Early voting will resume Wednesday in Maryland, and polls will be open with extended hours through Friday, Gov. Martin O’Malley announced Tuesday.
Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to make up for time lost due to Hurricane Sandy. Early voting was cancelled for Monday and Tuesday, and not originally schedule for Friday. Early voting hours were originally 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
“Anyone that’s waiting in line by 9 p.m. will be able to vote,” O’Malley said during a press conference at Maryland Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters in Reisterstown.
Early voting will take place in Garrett County as well, where the governor said the state may have to plow roads and resort to backup power sources.
