We have three days left for early voting because it ends on April 21. The
primary is April 26. We need people to fill out the survey. Read Lou Ann's
message below for the reasons.
Thanks in advance for your help,

National Federation of the Blind of Maryland
Maryland's primary election early voting period ends on April 21, and
primary election day is April 26. SBE has instructed poll judges not to
inform voters of the availability of the accessible voting machine, and to
offer paper ballots for hand marking to all voters except those with
"obvious" disabilities. Therefore, if you want to use the accessible voting
machine, it is very important that you state you want to use it when you
check in with poll judges. Once you have requested to use the accessible
voting machine, poll judges must honor your request.
After you have made your voice heard by voting, please let NFBMD know about
your experience by completing our short ten question survey. The link to the
survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZGFL99W . Please complete the
survey by May 2. If you have any questions about the survey, feel free to
contact me at 410-659-9314, ext. 2221, or lblake at nfb.org

independently, you are also encouraged to report them to the Maryland
Disability Law Center:
by phone at 443-692-2492; 800-233-7201, ext. 2492; or by email at
