Voters’ Guides: In December, LWV of Maryland prepared Voters’ Guides for the Special Primary Election in the 7th Congressional District, the first step towards filling the seat left vacant by the death of Congressman Elijah Cummings. These Guides were printed and distributed in mid-January in the 7th District, which includes parts of Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Howard County. Candidate information was also available online in VOTE411.
Voter Registration Following Naturalization Ceremonies: Our league continues to register new citizens to vote following naturalization ceremonies at the Baltimore Field Office of the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). In 2019, we registered a total of 1,134 new voters at this site. Newly naturalized citizens will receive the Voters' Guide for the current election year. Other Guides are available in all Baltimore County libraries and by request at our office.
Volunteer(s) Needed to Enter Data into Excel: As part of our voter registration project at USCIS, LWVUS would like us to collect contact information from our new voters so that we can follow up with reminders to vote, election information, etc. We are therefore looking for one or two volunteers to enter the contact information into an Excel spread sheet. This would take approximately 2 hours a month. If you are interested, please call or email Barbara Crain (410-299-0157, firstname.lastname@example.org).
