The biggest Election Day concern reported to Patch was at St. Mary’s. Officials at Carroll University were concerned that some students may not be allowed to vote because one of the polling places for the university was only accepting housing lists as proof of residency. And many names on those lists have out-of-town addresses.
The university asked poll workers to allow students to vote if they show an ID and a tuition form. While the university had concerns, no problems were reported to Patch.
