Do You Understand This Year’s Ballot?

| October 15, 2012

A nonpartisan discussion will be lead by Annapolis Alderwoman Sheila Finlayson and County Councilman Chris Trumbauer to help prepare residents for the upcoming election.

This informational session, which will address each ballot question, will be held Tuesday, October 16, at the Democratic Headquarters, 49 Spa Rd, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Alderwoman Finlayson and County Councilman Trumbauer will be available to discuss both City and County ballot questions.

The ballot is very long and will require some preparation. The ballot is 6 pages in length and has 15 questions on Anne Arundel County issues alone.

The goal is to have the voters familiar with the ballot questions before they arrive at the polls. Participants will receive a handout that can be taken to the polls. Residents will also have an opportunity to go online and check their registration.

    I understand it but I need a coffee break in the middle of it!

  2. I definitely think more outreach / voter education is necessary, and perhaps there are some civic groups that could provide it. But can you really host a, “nonpartisan discussion,” of controversial ballot initiatives at, “Democratic Headquarters”?

    I would be very surprised if the, “handout that can be taken to the polls,” isn’t a pre-filled sample ballot based on one particular party’s partisan preferences.

    If that’s not the case then I’d suggest they host the event at the library or another more non-partisan location.

      I agree 100% Adam! It is being hosted by 2 democrats in the democratic hq. Political positioning is alive and well in Maryland. Favors will be done and re-paid!
