Are You Registered to Vote?
“Your vote is your voice” is the message being taken door-to-door by a group
of volunteers encouraging Kent and Queen Anne’s County residents to register
to vote.
The non-partisan volunteers represent a coalition of members of local civic and
church groups. Members are now canvassing door-to-door in portions of the
counties and will also offer rides to the polls on Election Day.
On Saturday, June 30
th
, 15 volunteers went to all residences in Washington Park
and many along Flatland Road, and handed out information at 153 homes.
According to Pew Charitable Trust Research, unregistered voters were likely not
asked to register, are not interested in politics, and are less likely to believe that
voting can influence government. The message of the “Your Vote, Your Voice”
group is that everyone can make a difference.
As of 2016, 22% of Kent County residents were not registered to vote. Voter
registration is open now for Maryland citizens 16 and over. Students attending
college in Maryland who use their college address, and former convicts, even if
on probation, are eligible to vote. Any voter may vote by absentee ballot.
