The non-partisan group is a coalition of members of local civic groups. “Your vote is literally your voice in the forward prog- ress of our community, our state, and our country,” according to Muriel Cole, Steering Committee mem- ber. She notes that in Kent County one out of five citizens is not registered to vote. The group hopes to increase participation among young people, the disenfranchised, and those who are not now involved in the political process. Voter registration is open now for Maryland citizens 18 and over, with pre-registration open to those over 16. 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. On-line registration is available at elections.state.md.us if you have a valid Maryland driver’s license or identification, or download an English or Spanish registration application and complete and return it. Citizens may also call 410-778-0038 to request a form. For those interested in volunteering for 2019-2020 activities, email yourvoiceyourvotemd@gmail.com.
