BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Expand the Ballot Coalition announced Monday morning a statewide campaign to have voting materials sent to every local jail in Maryland.

“Individuals, sitting in our prisons in jail who are pre-trial, not yet convicted of anything, are individuals who are sitting in our jails with misdemeanor convictions- these are individuals who are eligible to vote,” a representative from the coalition sent Monday.

It’s an education effort to remind Marylanders that people who are not currently serving a sentence for a felony conviction do have the right to vote
