The Maryland Voter Alliance Sounds the Call for Support of Voter Integrity across Maryland in Upcoming Hearing amidst New Legislation to Amend the State Constitution

The voter integrity organization encourages concerned citizens to attend the January 29 hearing of The Montgomery County Delegation to the General Assembly to review MC 25-16

ROCKVILLE, MD – January 26, 2016 – The Maryland Voter Alliance, a voter integrity organization dedicated to ensuring fraud-free elections for all Americans, announces today that The Montgomery County Delegation to the General Assembly will hold a hearing on Friday, January 29, 2016 to discuss MC 25-16, proposed legislation that would amend the Maryland Constitution to provide the Montgomery County Council and the Montgomery County Board of Education the authority to register non-citizens and children (16 and 17 years old) to vote in State Board of Education elections.

Set to take place on January 29, 2016 immediately following the House Floor Session in Room 218, Lowe House Office Building in Annapolis, Maryland, the hearing will focus on the details of this proposed legislation, which will be voted on by County Residents.

The potential impacts of this new legislation, if it is passed and signed into law, are significant and far-reaching. In particular, the ability to place additional responsibility and authority in the State Board of Elections, to determine voter eligibility and make additions to the voter rolls.

Central to the concerns for the implications of this proposed change to the Maryland State Constitution are the threat its provisions bring to the future of free and fair elections and further inaccuracies, opportunities for fraud, and ineligible records on the state’s already ‘dirty’ rolls.

“The Maryland Voter Alliance continues to stand strong for integrity in Maryland’s electoral system, and supports a free and fair process for all eligible citizens,” President of the Maryland Voter Alliance, Robyn Sachs stated. “MC 25-16 must not be allowed to pass, as it will continue to muddy the rolls and flood the already-plagued system with additional ineligible individuals, particularly non-citizens and underage voters, which both are violations of state and federal law. We encourage all concerned citizens to attend this hearing and speak out for the cause of voter integrity across Maryland!”
