Listen to this article

This is a voters guide for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. It includes links to the candidates’ websites, stories, endorsements and voters guides by other organizations, as well as coverage of the races in general. If you think we’ve missed something, let us know by contacting Len@MarylandReporter.com.

MarylandReporter.com is an independent nonprofit news website founded in 2009. We do not endorse candidates and we do not accept campaign advertising for any candidate.

The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls are open 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. Early voting will take place during the same hours Oct. 27 – Nov. 3. You can vote early at any early voting center in the county you live in; each county has at least one. Click here for more information about early voting. To find your polling place for Election Day, click here.

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.

These candidates also are covered in other voters guides linked below. Links to other voter guides will be added once they are updated for the general election.

Campaign finance reports for all candidates are now available on the State Board of Elections website. You can look up any candidate using this link:

Click on disclosures, view filed reports, click continue and then enter the candidate’s name (last name first) in the “candidate/committee name” highlighted box.
