“The primary election in Maryland on Tuesday was conducted under extraordinary circumstances that required timing changes and significant adjustments to voting methods,” the lawmakers said in a statement. “Under this pressure, it is clear there have been a number of breakdowns in the process.”

Gov. Larry Hogan also critiqued the process during a Wednesday press conference. He said there were “significant failures,” and he called on the state elections board to prepare a report to him and other state officials by July 3.

Linda Lamone, Maryland Board of Elections Administrator, has blamed ballot issues on an out-of-state vendor.

The lieutenant governor and comptroller want her to resign. A hearing has been called for June 16.
