A New Way of Voting

10 Nov

evThe entire state of MD will have a new voting system in 2016 and Baltimore City Board of Elections will be preparing the voters for the changes they will see doing early voting or in the polling place on Election Day.  The Board will create awareness and educate voters on the changes coming to how Baltimore City votes; this will be accomplished through grassroots voter outreach efforts and social media.

The goals are to promote understanding and acceptance of the new voting system among Baltimore City voters and educate them on how the new paper-based system is different from the touchscreen voting system, how polling place layouts will change, and why ballot-marking options will be different during Early Voting and on Election Day.

The Board of Elections wants to engage voters to create a positive public perception of the new voting system around the City, where citizens can come and get a hands-on experience with the new voting equipment. At each demonstration, attendees will be given a new voting system survey, which will allow the Board to capture and report the survey findings and results of each event. Through this voter outreach demonstration, the Board want to reach all eligible voters and individuals eligible to become registered voters in Baltimore.
