Task Force on Voting Irregularities to Hold First Public Hearing

BALTIMORE, MD (October 24, 2007) – The Task Force on Voting Irregularities will hold its first public hearing on Monday, October 29th at 5:30 p.m. at Bowie State University, Thurgood Marshall Library, 2nd floor. The public is invited to speak to the members of the task force to share their experiences and any problems they may have encountered when voting in the 2006 primary and general election.

Created earlier this year by Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, the Task Force on Voting Irregularities will hold hearings across Maryland to hear firsthand from citizens the problems they have encountered at the polls. Co-chaired by Sherrilynn Ifill, professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and Orlan Johnson, partner at Saul Ewing LLP, the task force will compile a report detailing the irregularities in the 2006 elections and make recommendations to resolve those problems. The task force is expected to present its findings to the Attorney General, Governor and legislative leaders by early next year.
