ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The dates of Maryland’s next governor and presidential primaries will be changed.

The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would schedule the 2012 presidential primary in April.

The 2014 primary for Maryland’s governor’s race would move from September to June under the measure. The gubernatorial primary would be held on the last Tuesday in June.

The House already has approved an identical bill, so the measure now goes to Gov. Martin O’Malley.

The change would allow the state to comply with the federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act.

It requires states to send members of military and other Americans overseas ballots no later than 45 days before a federal election.

    Pay attention to the changes folks. Its your chance to get even & vote all the pricks out of office that voted for tax increases, tuition for illegals & section 8 vouchers, medicaid, & welfare to lazy baby hatchers.

    I agree. The sooner we can vote those who fail to follow their constituents desires out of office the better.
