The right to vote, and to have one's vote accurately and fairly counted, is a fundamental right of all Americans. At the ACLU of Maryland, we believe the democratic process is invigorated through policies that encourage voter participation. Thus, we work to encourage election practices and voting technology that strengthen voting for people of color, to ensure that all voters have adequate opportunities for voter registration, to engage non-English speakers, and to protect and restore the voting rights of those with criminal convictions.
