I am William C. Smith, Jr.

Fair redistricting is important to me becauseā€¦

“Every voice in our society should be heard, and expanding access to the franchise in any way should a priority in our democracy. While in the legislature I helped lead the fight to re-enfranchise the more than 40,000 Marylanders with felony records on parole and probation regain their voting rights. I have also put forth automatic voter registration legislation making it easier for Marylanders to vote when they access government services.

The issue of partisan gerrymandering is of equal importance. Our elections should be as fair, transparent, and impartial as possible. To that end, I pledge to end gerrymandering.”
