Maryland Moves toward Modernization

April 11, 2016

We applaud the General Assembly for passing legislation to improve upon Maryland's voter registration system. With the Freedom to Vote Act, our state expands voter registration opportunities to nearly every state agency. The move towards modernized, online or electronic voter registration systems – and away from outdated paper-based models – will save the state both time and money, making this a win for both voters and administrators alike.

U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Re-Write of Constitution in Evenwel Redistricting Case

April 4, 2016

“Today’s decision affirms one of our most fundamental values as Americans: that every person counts. We now turn our attention to the states to monitor and combat any effort to deprive millions of young people, non-citizen residents, and other non-voters of constitutional protections. Our nation’s charter begins with the words ‘We the People;’ that means everyone – not just those who vote – is entitled to equal representation at every level of government.”
