In the Moving Forward podcast, you’ll hear about the contributions these engaged citizens make to address the challenges that face us. Host Kate Sanner interviews candidates, community leaders, community activists, and elected officials on a number of civic, political and social justice topics.

BALLOT INITIATIVES

From Eva Lewis, Political Director of the Maryland Democratic Party:

There are two ballot initiatives that voters will vote on for this election –
(1) Fix the Fund so that monies from gambling are in a “lockbox” and can only be used for education and
(2) passing an amendment to our state constitution to allow same day registration on election days.
The state party supports both ballot initiatives.
