Attention Registered Voters in Maryland!! 
 
In Maryland when you register to vote you never have to exercise your franchise and will remain on the voter rolls forever, or at least until we receive information that you no longer want to be registered in Maryland, or we hear from the DHMH that you are deceased or you become a Felon and are serving time in jail. 
 
However, if you are a registered voter and vote in an election and then become inactive because you failed to respond to a confirmation notice, and then you do not vote for the next 2 General Elections, you can be cancelled for failure to vote.  (Reference EL §3-503 (c))

Reinstating "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services"

Created by R.T. on March 25, 2017

 

On March 7th, 2017, a repeal for the "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Communication Services" bill that protects the people from having their information sold from ISPs to paying bidders. On March 23rd, 2017, a joint resolution was made and the bill was repealed by our senators who had received generous donations from Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as AT&T and Comcast.

 

We the people, by signing this petition, demand that Congress reinstates this bill to protect the American people from having their information released by our ISPs.      Click here to sign this petition.

 

 

Veto S.J. Res 34 - Don't let Internet providers spy and sell our online data. Please keep the FCC's Privacy Rules.

Created by M.D. on March 29, 2017

 

The FCC's privacy and consumer data security rule require broadband or wireless Internet Service Providers (ISPs) safeguard Americans’ privacy when they go online. The rule requires that your ISP:

* Must ask your permission to collect and sell sensitive personal data collected over the network – including browsing history, email content, and app usage – to advertisers and other third parties, possibly the government; * Take “reasonable measures” to secure your personal information; and * Notify customers when their data is stolen.

 

S.J. Res 34 blocks this rule and prevents any new FCC rules. Other laws block the FTC from enacting any rules on ISPs. Consumers would have no privacy rules. We want better privacy protections like the FCC rules, not more loopholes.
