ValueMyVote is a voter empowerment campaign aimed specifically at the education, registration and mobilization of currently and formerly incarcerated citizens who are eligible to vote in Maryland, in order to ensure that those who have had prior convictions know that they also a voice - i.e. a right to VOTE! Led by Out for Justice
, the campaign also seeks to ensure that the state's current laws around voting rights for former felons are adhered to, while advocating and lobbying on behalf of legislation that positively reengages this often forgotten population.
Currently, Maryland state law allows citizens who have previously been convicted of a felony to register to vote as long as they are not currently incarcerated, i.e. "Behind the Walls". Those currently incarcerated either awaiting trial who have not been convicted of a crime, or those serving time for a misdemeanor conviction, are also eligible to vote!
