    Campaign Financing System Petition Needs You

    County Council Resolution 1-22 proposed an amendment to the County Charter to establish an optional public campaign financing system for candidates for Anne Arundel County Executive and County Council. County Council failed to pass the resolution, denying county voters the opportunity to decide for themselves this November.

    Your help is needed to get the 10,000 signatures required to have the public campaign finance amendment on the ballot in November. Please click here to download the petition. It's important to print the petition so that it is double-sided, with the signature spaces on one side, and the amendment text on the other. One sheet has spaces for 5 signatures. Please ask Anne Arundel County registered voters in your household, workplace and community to sign the petition. As the petition circulator, you will complete the information at the bottom of the form.

    Mail the completed form(s) to Abby Root, LWVAAC Action, P. O. Box 35, Arnold, MD 21012.

    The goal is to collect the required number of signatures by the end of June so each can be verified and the petition process completed by August. 

    Read on for more information about the petition. Contact [email protected] if you have any questions.

  • Becoming an Election Judge Has Its Rewards

    By Vera Herath, LWVAAC Voter Services co-chair and Board directorVera Herath, LWVAAC Voter Services co-chair

    What’s an Election Judge? Well, I’m happy to tell you because I’ve been an Election Judge for nearly 10 years and truly enjoy doing my part to help people vote.

    Election Judges are the friendly, helpful people you see working at your polling place when you vote in person. They ensure that qualified registered voters cast their votes privately, safely, and securely. They check in voters and issue Voter Authority Cards and ballots. They guide voters to the voting booths and answer any questions about filling in the ballot. They also help voters scan their ballots so that they are tabulated and counted. Election Judges help provisional voters when necessary. Finally, they have the pleasure of giving each voter a coveted “I voted” sticker to wear proudly.
