One month from today, early voting begins in the April 26 primary. If you’re not yet registered to vote in this important election, you have three weeks to get registered, until April 5. Now, a conversation with representatives from three organizations who have been encouraging people to register for a long time. Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development, or BUILD, held an event yesterday at Coppin State University that they billed as a Mayoral Accountability Assembly. Rob English is the Executive Director of BUILD. 

Nykidra Robinson is the founder of Black Girls Vote, which has been holding a series of pop-up events to engage potential voters and get them involved. Ethan Giffin is the founder and CEO of Groove, a Baltimore-based marketing agency. He has started an organization called Bmore Votes, which engages companies in town to disseminate information about voting to their employees.
