Vote Tallies

Involving the three Constitutional Amendment Questions so far:

Of those who voted For/Against the MD Constitutional Convention Question

Of those who voted For/Against raising the Trial By Jury Threshold ($10k to $15k)

Of those who voted For/Against the Judge for Baltimore City Orphans Court to be a member in good standing of the Maryland Bar
(Means not only MUST the Judge be a lawyer but also a Member of the Bar)

Point: Out of these three Ballot Questions, the ONLY ONE requiring a double majority for passage is the first one. Why not the other two?? Just asking. I think it is a pertinent question.

UPDATE: Aftermath So Far

Several new articles:

UPDATE: MD Constitution Convention Question Gets Majority Vote, But Not So Fast

Fate of MD Constitutional Convention win unclear

Constitutional Convention unlikely, but up to MD General Assembly

“But Maryland’s constitution provides that a convention be called only when it has the support of a majority of all voters in the election, not just those who voted on the proposal, said Assistant Attorney General Daniel A. Friedman, counsel to the General Assembly.”

‘No vote’ was a ‘no’ vote on MD Constitutional Convention

Seems to me, all we ever get is double speak on this issue. For decades. What a shame.
