A Vote Against Cruelty The momentum to get a vote on repealing the death sentence in Maryland.

Swing votes – call your reps.
swing votes include
Sen. James Brochin (D-Baltimore County),
Sen. Alex X. Mooney (R-Frederick) and
Sen. Bryan W. Simonaire (R-Anne Arundel)

Many states are considering a repeal of the death penalty and are looking to Maryland as a bellwether. As Time magazine noted, “Now the focus is on Maryland.”
