As voters turn out in record high numbers for early voting, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and attorneys are making sure voters head to the polls and are treated fairly.
At a news conference Monday, Senator Cardin joined Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh and leaders of minority groups to talk about voters rights.
Disabled voters and those who don’t speak English are allowed to bring someone with them into the polling center.
Senator Cardin said he’s pleased by the turnout so far.
“I think Marylanders understood the convenience of early voting. This is a very exciting election. People want their votes to count, and they’re showing-up early when they should and voting,” said Senator Cardin, (D), Maryland.
Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until Thursday.
