TrueVote Applauds O'Malley For Funding Transition to Paper Ballot PDF  | Print |  Email

Urges Legislature to Keep Funding in Budget

Today, TrueVoteMD.org thanked Governor Martin O'Malley for including $3.4 million in his budget to transition Maryland back to a voting system based on paper ballots counted by optical scanners.

"This is a historic step for election integrity in Maryland.  Governor O'Malley promised to fund the bill and kept his promise.  A return to paper ballots is widely supported by the Maryland voters and will save the state money by reducing the costs of election administration. It is a smart fiscal decision as well as a good decision for the health of our democracy," said Kevin Zeese, Executive Director of TrueVoteMD.org. 

TrueVoteMD.org is the largest election integrity organization in the state with members in all of the states 23 counties.  It has worked for five years to put in place a voter verified paper ballot. "We are near the culmination of five years of citizen effort.  The final hurdle is to protect this funding from being cut from the budget by the legislature.   TrueVoteMD.org will be working with the legislature to ensure this transition is completed," said Zeese.
