    Montgomery County Republican Central Committee 

    Demands the Montgomery County Board of Elections 

    Clean-up County Voter Rolls.

    There are concerning issues with the voter rolls in Montgomery County, Maryland (MD). This week, the county Republican Central Committee (MCGOP.com), has reached out to the Montgomery County Board of Elections asking them to clean up the County’s voter rolls, prior to the primary elections. Following MCGOP’s recent review of potential voter irregularities, the time to put things on the right track is now - before the June primary elections. One example shared with the BOE is a list of registered county voters who may have voted in both Montgomery County, Maryland and as well as in North Carolina; that is illegal. Another example MCGOP shared with the Board of Elections is a list of voters in Montgomery County, MD that may be inactive, as prepared by the Maryland Voter Integrity Group.

    Robyn Sachs of the Maryland Voter Integrity Group states. “It is imperative that the Maryland Board of Elections clean up our Maryland voter rolls. We have 106,000 “inactive voters” who voted in 2020, over 559 over 100-year-olds, and people voting from commercial locations from pharmacies to football fields.

    The MCGOP noted that the Board of Elections could compare, reconcile, and purge voter rolls of individuals who have submitted "change of address" requests to the USPS indicating they have moved to a different location outside of the County or outside of the State. This data is from the "National Change of Address" (NCOA) system and Federal election law "allows" state Board of Elections to use NCOA data to update voter rolls although states are NOT required to use this key data set. 

    Reardon Sullivan, Chairman of the MCGOP notes “Although the irregularities in Montgomery County may not be large enough to swing a national election, they could be a factor in local and municipal races.” 

    The MCGOP offers a 10 point plan for cleaning up the Montgomery County voter rolls and requests that the Board of Elections implement same:  

    1. Purge voters that do not reside in Montgomery County.
    2. Remove duplicate voters. 
    3. Investigate voters that have addresses at USPS, UPS, storage lockers and other questionable residences.
    4. Identify non-citizens in the database. Update databases to include a data field to distinguish between those authorized to vote in Federal and State elections versus only local elections.
    5. Investigate voters who have more than one registration. A failure to respond by providing proof of identity and current address should result in removal.
    6. Purge ghosts registrations. 
    7. Compare, reconcile, and purge voter rolls using deaths reported at the Register of Wills and with SSA death records.
    8. Compare, reconcile, and purge voter rolls using both criminal conviction and mental incompetence records.
    9. Compare, reconcile, and purge voter rolls using the county's tax records and primary residences against   County/State tax filings.
    10. Make provisional ballots a different size or color, so they are handled separately and NOT scanned with all ballots that are NOT provisional.  

    We implore the leaders in the local Democrat party to join us in keeping our voter rolls beyond reproach and make Montgomery County Maryland a national model of voter roll integrity.

    Hello MFRW Officers, Club Presidents and Legislative Committee,

    The deadline for submission of bills is past.  All bills being introduced late must go to the Rules Committee for approval. Bills are being voted on during floor sessions. See the 2nd column from the right margin of the attached Weekly Update for action and status of bills.  Bills with hearings this week are highlighted in red and those for Monday and Tuesday of next week are highlighted in blue in 3rd column from right.

    Beginning today, ALL SENATE HEARINGS will be IN-PERSON. The window to sign up to testify on Senate bills has been changed as well.  Sign-ups will take place through the MyMGA account, from 4 p.m. the day prior to the hearing until 10 a.m. on the day of the hearing. 

    House hearings remain VIRTUAL at this time.  Sign-ups must still take place two business days prior to the hearing.

    This week there are hearings on several important bills dealing with Immigration. If you have not signed up to testify in support of HB 756 - Correctional Services - transfers to Federal Authority of Undocumented Immigrants convicted of crimes or who are active members of criminal gangs or who are suspected of espionage, please call or e-mail the members of the Ways and Means Committee today or tomorrow morning and request a FAVORABLE Report for HB 756.  See MFRW testimony attached.

    On February 22, HB 928 will be heard in the Environment & Transportation Committee. HB 928 will prohibit a person from disclosing information regarding a person's actual or perceived citizenship or immigration status WITHOUT a Federal Court order to any other person, including an immigration authority or a law enforcement agency.    From my ordinary citizen viewpoint, this appears to be a violation of every citizen's 1st Amendment right of free speech.

    SB 550 on transgender rights to allow biological males, who identify as female, to be housed in women's corrections facilities is being heard in the Judicial Proceedings Committee on February 17. Testimony must be submitted today.  It is the companion bill to HB 453 that was heard last week.  The safety of women inmates in correctional facilities need to be protected. Transgender inmates should be housed in separate facilities.  MFRW testimony on SB 550 is attached.

    Please review the full Weekly Update.  There are many bills of concern under consideration by the General Assembly.
