Election Protection

Maryland voters should feel safe and supported as they cast their votes. This year, we’re ramping up our efforts and beginning to train volunteers to help protect the vote amid COVID-19.

Our nonpartisan voter protection program that seeks to ensure that every eligible Maryland voter who wants to vote can and that every vote is counted accurately, even during this public health crisis. Our Election Protection program is not affiliated with any party, candidate or issue campaign.

Volunteers like you will be voters’ first line of defense against suppression tactics, confusing laws, outdated infrastructure, and other impediments to making themselves heard.

Sign up as a Maryland Election Protection volunteer today and we’ll reach out with all the information you need to get started.
