SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s state election board is weighing late changes in the state’s plan for the November election.

Board vice chairman Patrick Hogan made a last-ditch appeal Wednesday for the board to recommend mailing ballots to every registered voter. The board has been divided on that option. Gov. Larry Hogan issued a directive to hold a traditional in-person election on Nov. 3. The board didn’t act on Patrick Hogan’s plea Wednesday for mailing ballots directly to voters. But the board is scheduled to meet again on Friday to discuss changes suggested by local election officials, including expanding the number of early-voting centers.
