BALTIMORE — Whether you mail in your ballot or vote in person, your vote counts!

Tuesday, democratic leaders for Baltimore came together virtually to urge you to vote.

All of the speakers backed the democratic nominees, starting with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris all the way down to the seats in Baltimore.

Third District Congressman John Sarbanes, kicked off the press conference followed by Second District Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger.

Current Councilman and presumptive City Comptroller elect Bill Henry, talked about how important your vote is this year and how to vote.

Early voting starts on October 26 and goes until November 2.

The general election is November 3, but you can always mail in or drop off your ballot beforehand.

"Right now more than ever we need a transformative team, an innovative team, a team that’s going to roll up their sleeves and really get to work," said Delegate Nick Mosby, Democratic Nominee for City Council President.

Baltimore City Council President and Democratic Mayoral nominee Brandon Scott wrapped up the presentation.

"This is a team that will help to show a new way forward for Baltimore. It’s not about one person, it’s about how this collective group of competent, focused dedicated people will build a foundation how Baltimore can be the best Baltimore we can be," said Scott. He added, "we need a partner in the White House who understands the importance of making investments in cities like Baltimore like infrastructure, closing the digital divide, helping to rebuild a public safety and criminal justice system that is fair and impartial for all and not just some. We need a leader ready to confront rising inequality and racial disparities... here at the local level we have the opportunity to break from the past and build a new city government with this election. One that understands that well never end gun violence or overdose deaths in Baltimore until we implement a complete comprehensive strategy and how to do that."
