Motorists in Perry Hall reported that there was along backup on Honeygo Boulevard around Ebenezer Road. on Tuesday evening It was later revealed from Councilman David Marks that the backup traffic is the line to get into the voting center at Honeygo Run Community Center. It is the only voting center in northeast Baltimore County.
“This is the line of cars waiting to turn into Honeygo Run Regional Park for the primary election. If you are not familiar with Perry Hall, this traffic light is about a mile to the south of the entrance to the park,” Marks said in a statement.
“I understand the pandemic created extraordinary circumstances, but situations like these call for answers. Why were there only four in-person voting sites? Many people will never vote by mail – they do not trust the Postal Service with the solemn obligation of delivering a vote.”
Honeygo is only one of four voting sites open on Election Day. There was no early voting this year because of COVID-19 and all registered voters were sent mail-in ballots. Voters were asked to mail back the ballots but some voters complained that they never received their ballots and said they were forced to attend one of the four centers to vote today.
