Voter Registration

 

 

 

Governor Hogan and the Board of Elections have determined that mail-in ballots will not be sent directly to Maryland registered voters as they were in the primary election.

Applications for mail-in ballots will be sent to all registered voters who have not already requested a mail-in ballot.

The latest information about mail-in voting can be found on the Maryland Board of Elections website. Note: Absentee ballots are now called mail-in ballots.

Mail-in Ballot Application Deadlines

Your request for a mail-in ballot must be received (not just mailed) by:

  • Tuesday, October 27, 2020, if you want to receive your ballot by mail or fax
  • Friday, October 30, 2020, if you want to download your ballot from the State's website

Once you receive your ballot, follow the instructions on the ballot and then:

  • Mail your ballot. If you mail your voted ballot, make sure that the envelope is postmarked on or before November 3, 2020. Your voted ballot must be received by your local board of elections by 10 am on November 13, 2020.
  • You may hand deliver your ballot to your local board of elections office by 8 pm on election day, or you may take it to an early voting center or a polling place by the time the polls close.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Most voters do not need to show ID. If you have voted in Maryland before, you do not need to provide ID to voter in person.
  • You may need to bring ID or valid proof of current residence if you are voting for the first time, if you registered to vote by mail, or in case your name is not on the registered voters list at the polling place for any reason. More Rules and Information for Maryland Voters.
