Citizens across Maryland took to the polls on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 to elect new leaders for everything from President of the United States to local judges. Members of AFT-Maryland, and supporters of candidates across Baltimore City and Baltimore County volunteered their efforts and time to back union endorsed candidates.
Union members, staff, and activists volunteered at strategic positions to support candidates in contested races that face low turnout. Shannon Sneed had a strong presence at polling locations to show support for her. She was endorsed by AFT-Maryland, and members went on labor walks to get out the vote for her.
Members also phone-banked for AFT endorsed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Members, activists, and staff all volunteered diligently to support union endorsed candidates and are eager for the general election in November.
