The ACLU of Maryland's Election Protection campaign is a statewide effort to educate voters about their rights and solve problems at the polls. We will hold a hotline - 410-889-8555 - for Maryland voters on Election Day (November 8). We will reach out to groups across the state and political spectrum to raise awareness of the hotline and distribute thousands of Maryland Voter Empowerment cards.
