LANDOVER, Md. — In an election year where the integrity of the election has been called into question, there’s an effort to make sure that voters know their rights if they are challenged at the polling place.
“We’re here today, because your right to vote is a fundamental principal of our democracy,” said Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., Monday outside the Prince George’s County Sports and Learning Complex — an early voting site.
Cardin was joined by Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh and Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks, as well as representatives from the local chapter of the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and other civil rights groups.
Cardin said voting is a right that should be protected.
“We say that because in prior elections, we have seen problems in Maryland,” Cardin said.
