The Maryland State Board of Elections must receive requests for a mail-in ballot (formerly known as an absentee ballot) by Nov. 1. Voters may opt to receive their mail-in ballots by U.S. mail or email. After Nov. 1, mail-in ballots can be picked up at your local board of elections, and be completed there or submitted later. Mail-in ballots must be dropped in a ballot drop box by 8 p.m, on Election Day, Nov. 8, or postmarked by that day if mailed. Click here for a mail-in ballot request form.
The deadline to register to vote or to update your voter registration is Oct. 18. Voters may register at their polling place during early voting or on Election Day with proper ID. Click here for more information.
