Task Force on Voting Irregularities to Hold Final Public Hearing in Baltimore City

BALTIMORE, MD (January 17, 2008) – The Task Force on Voting Irregularities will hold its last public hearing on Thursday, January 24th at 5:30p.m. at Sojourner Douglass College, 500 North Caroline Street in Baltimore City. 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 last summer by Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, the Task Force on Voting Irregularities held hearings across Maryland to hear firsthand from citizens the problems they 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 early this year.
