BALTIMORE CITY BOARD OF ELECTIONS

PRESS RELEASE

September 7, 2007

On Friday, September 7, 2007 the Baltimore City Police Department executed a search and seizure warrant at the Board of Elections warehouse located on N. Franklintown Road. It is our understanding that the warrant was related to allegations regarding the manufacturing and selling of illegal DVDs. At the time no Election Board equipment was used in the making of the DVD’s and none of the Board of Election equipment was seized or touched by the Baltimore City Police Department.

The one employee allegedly involved in the purported DVD operation has been reassigned from the Board of Elections warehouse and will not have access to any sensitive election-related equipment pending further investigation. In addition, the Baltimore City Board of Elections will support the Police Department in its ongoing investigation of this allegation.

The Baltimore City Board of Elections assures you that this morning’s events have not hampered its preparedness for next Tuesday’s election. The Baltimore City Board of Elections remains committed to delivering a smooth, uneventful election.

Any questions regarding this situation should be referred to Armstead B. Jones at 410-396-5570.

Thank you,

Armstead B. Crawley Jones, Sr.
Election Director
