AFT-Maryland was present and accounted for at the DPW Youthworks Resource Fair on Wednesday July 27, 2016 at the War Memorial Building, registering Baltimoreans to vote. Staff, members, and retirees in attendance worked to get young and old alike registered and involved in the electoral process. Some even saw a kinship in the younger registrants and took them to the side to explain both the historical and social significance of voting.
Many first-time voters will have the opportunity to place a true thumbprint on life for Baltimore this November as the city will hold general elections for Mayor, City Council, Congress, Senate, and President of the United States. The activists were eager to get people registered and hoping the new registrants would turn into voters for AFT-Maryland endorsed candidates, including Sec. Hillary Clinton.
