Voting By Mail:
Should LWVMD Adopt a State-Wide Position?
Monday, Nov. 30, 2020
We will hold a consensus meeting on the findings of the state League's study of Vote By Mail on Nov. 30, 2020. We will review the study findings and then complete and return a Recorder's Form documenting whether or not consensus is reached on whether or not the LWVMD should adopt a position on voting by mail as the statewide norm for all elections. We will also cover 10 questions related to assessing the importance of certain aspects of voting by mail. Our responses will help the state League determine if statewide consensus has been reached in time for them to prepare for the January 13 start of the 2021 Session of the Maryland General Assembly.
There are many different aspects to and issues involved with the Vote by Mail process, so we will present the study findings and discuss the importance of various aspects of the process. We hope you will join us at this meeting. Please read the Study Fact Sheet; this document is not very long, only 14 pages of facts (9.5 pages), questions (1.5 pages), and references (2.25 pages). Now is your chance to weigh in on what you believe Maryland should do about voting by mail.
While only League members can participate in the consensus part of the meeting, the findings of the study offer much to consider in terms of how voting by mail has been implemented in various jurisdictions and the various factors involved in setting up and maintaining a vote-by-mail process.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
These are important issues, and we look forward to getting your input! To get the Zoom details, RSVP here or send an email to us at our email account.
