HelpSaveMaryland.com, a grassroots organization aimed at providing information for undocumented immigrants, has launched an outreach campaign, offering education about voter fraud.

The group says their first campaign flier is meant to help immigrants avoid voter fraud, which it calls a "terrible mistake." The flier informs immigrants that voting without citizenship is a crime, and it warns that doing so could lead to fines, imprisonment, and even deportation.

The flier is available on the group's website in English, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Korean. HelpSaveMarylan.com is urging the public and non-profits, such as churches to download the fliers and distribute them throughout the state.

The organization is behind the push to repeal the Dream Act, which would grant in-state tuition to undocumented students.
