Annapolis city election vote-by-mail lawsuit dismissed by judge

An Anne Arundel County judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by two Republican political candidates that sought to block Annapolis from mailing ballots to all registered voters in its upcoming primary and general elections. In a seven-page opinion issued Monday, Circuit Judge Glenn Klavans wrote that Republican Herb McMillan, a county executive candidate, and George Gallagher, a candidate for the City Council Ward 6 seat waited too long to take legal action after learning of the city’s plans to mail ballots to voters in mid-June. Klavans ordered the lawsuit, which was filed in late July, be dismissed with prejudice, which means a new lawsuit can’t be filed on the same premise. Brooks Dubose, The Baltimore Sun.
