    LWV of Maryland Provides Voter Education Tool VOTE411

    Annapolis– Ahead of the 2022 Midterm elections, the League of Women Voters of Maryland offers the nonpartisan election resource VOTE411.org. This “one-stop shop” for election information provides Maryland voters with simple, accessible tools to help them navigate the voting process. VOTE411 provides personalized candidate information, voter registration details, polling place locations, and other helpful election information for all voters nationwide. LWVMD offers voters a chance to read responses from every candidate who will be on the ballot.

    “From local ballot initiatives to important state races, it is crucial voters in Maryland make their voices heard this election year,” said Nancy Soreng, President. “VOTE411 is the nation’s premiere online election resource that provides voters with the resources they need to make an informed vote this fall. The League of Women Voters of Maryland has published our voter guide on VOTE411 as a resource for all Maryland voters.” Vote411.org goes live on June 4th. In many communities in Maryland LWVMD’s Voter’s Guides in your local newspaper, library, or you will soon be able to go to our website www.lwvmd.org/voting.

    In Montgomery County Vote411 and print Voter’s Guides are available in both English and Spanish, VOTE411 helps millions each year — many of them young people and first-time voters — learn more about what’s on their ballot, where candidates stand on the issues, how to find their polling place, and more.

    “The League of Women Voters of Maryland is pleased to provide this important, nonpartisan resource to Maryland voters,” said Nikki Tyree, Executive Director. “We encourage voters to visit VOTE411.org to make a voting plan so they are prepared to cast their vote confidently on Election Day!”

    Maryland’s Primary Election day will be held July 19th. Voters must be registered by June 28th. To request a Mail-in Ballot you must request one through the State Board of Elections or your Local Board by July 12th. These must be returned to a drop box or postmarked by July 19th to be counted. Early voting begins July 7th and will run through July 14th.
