Early Voting all over Maryland is every day, including Saturday and Sunday, from today through Thursday, Nov. 1, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Find out how and where to vote here.

Early Voting is, as we at Progressive Maryland have said, a chance to avoid being ambushed by life’s everyday issues on Election Day and not being able to vote in this important election. Make sure your voice is heard. Make a plan to vote, and help your neighbors and community to do the same. Poor turnout in 2014 brought us a Republican governor whose administration has hurt working families, their children, and the state’s quality of life compared to its neighbors. Let’s surge to the polls to avoid a repeat.

ben_jealous_hustings.jpgWe at Progressive Maryland have endorsed Ben Jealous for Governor and Susie Turnbull for Lieutenant Governor. We have argued that Larry Hogan has done enough damage to the state’s educational quality and the lives of working people while he catered to the “needs” of big money and corporate interests, both in and out of the state. He needs to be sent home.

We have endorsed Jealous/Turnbull and other progressive candidates at every level of state and local government. See our endorsements here, including how the candidates answered our questionnaires about the issues facing our state. You’ll see why they are backing them.

We have outlined Ben Jealous’s program for making Maryland whole again, with progressive and pro-people improvements to health care, public education, and economic development with clean-energy jobs. We have noted how Larry Hogan’s so-called centrist pragmatism masks programs and practices that consistently favor his rich corporate backers compared to the interests of Maryland’s working families.

When you go to the polling place, think about Maryland’s chance for a vibrant future better than the “not-that-bad” present being offered by Hogan, and vote for Jealous/Turnbull and other progressives who want to move beyond business as usual.
