On April 15, 2015, LDF President and Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill submitted a letter urging Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to sign Senate Bill 340, which restores voting rights to individuals with felony convictions as they complete a sentence of parole or probation and seek to fully integrate and contribute to communities around Maryland.  Signing SB 340 into law – and providing nearly 40,000 Marylanders with the opportunity to regain their right to vote – would help to bring the state’s election laws into greater conformity with fundamental principles of an inclusive democracy.
