Dear Friend,

Today, the Secretary of State released the final language for the ballot questions in Maryland for the 2012 General Election. This is an important election, and as Marylanders, it is our responsibility to make informed decisions on policies that will affect our State for years to come.

I encourage everyone to closely examine the ballot initiatives and share the language with family and friends. This year, we have a unique opportunity to move our State forward toward a more just and equal society, while defending dignity, protecting religious freedom, and investing in our greatest assets: the talents, skills, ingenuity and creativity of our people.

To read all of the ballot language, please click here or copy and post this link in your address line above
