ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement regarding the Montgomery Circuit Court decision allowing the early counting of mail-in ballots for the 2022 General Election:

“We welcome Judge Bonifant’s decision allowing the State Board of Elections to institute early canvassing for the general election, as I did in 2020 during the pandemic. It worked well in that election, but partisan legislators dropped the ball on adopting our successful approach, making this step necessary. We thank the court for acting swiftly, and encourage Marylanders to take part in the electoral process, make sure their registration is up to date, and consider volunteering to serve as an election judge.”
