Election Day Is Just Around The Corner

Executive Director's Letter
September 27, 2016

With the first 2016 presidential debate in our rearview mirror, Election Day is just around the corner. The drama of last night’s match up between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton reinforces the critical need for EVERYONE to be involved in the electoral process. If you haven’t done so already, it is essential that you register to vote in the general election. And it’s not just the presidential race; we will also be choosing state and local representation, including Baltimore’s Mayor. Here’s some key voting information:

October 18, 9pm is the deadline to register to vote in the 2016 General Election

October 27 – November 3, 8am-8pm are the Early Voting dates

November 8, 7am-8pm is Election Day
