We must dedicate ourselves to the cause of democracy, voting rights, civil rights. We must fight against autocracy and against the denial of voting rights and civil rights. Among the improvements we should champion in Maryland are an end to gerrymandering, universal and automatic voter registration, E-voting with appropriate safeguards (like France and Estonia do), open primaries in which the top candidates go on to the general election (like California, Louisiana, and Alaska do), and ranked choice voting (as they do now in Maine and Alaska and in Australia).
