Election Follies: Part I...

You stay classy, Bob Ehrlich.

Inaccurate sample ballots describing Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Senate candidate Michael S. Steele as Democrats were handed out to voters in at least four polling sites in Prince George's County this morning.

The ballots were distributed by people who said they arrived by buses this morning from Pennsylvania and Delaware.

...The Ehrlich and Steele campaigns yesterday acknowledged sending out an election-eve flier, sporting pictures of Prince George's County Executive Jack B. Johnson, his predecessor Wayne K. Curry and former NAACP president Kweisi Mfume. The mailer, declaring itself an "official voter guide" and criticized by Democrats, suggested the three Democrats backed Ehrlich and Steele. Curry has endorsed Steele; none has endorsed Ehrlich.

A little off topic, but my boos is a republican and on well connected. Erlich sent out a mass email this afternoon saying there was unusually low turnout in counties he carries heavily, enouraging people to vote and send the email to more people. Who knows if this is true or just a tactic to increase turnout. If it is, it certainly is encouraging news for the statewide election if you are a Democrat.
