Deciding Where to Register to Vote

Why should I register to vote in Baltimore County?

All college students in Maryland, including in-state and out-of-state, are allowed to register to vote in the state of Maryland. If you are from another state or another Maryland county, you can register to vote in Baltimore County using your local “school” address, either on or off campus. Any person registered to vote in Baltimore County can vote at Towson University during Early Voting Days. Early Voting takes place on six different days prior to election day for both the Primary and General Elections.

Students can also vote on Election Day at their specific polling location. The polling location for all resident students is the University Union, Potomac Lounge. All other students can find their particular polling location by visiting the MD Board of Elections website:

You can also register to vote by completing a Maryland Voter Registration Application and mailing it to your county Board of Elections (address information is included on the application). Be sure to fill in all information and sign the voter registration form.

Any student attending college in the state of Maryland, whether from in-state or out-of-state, is eligible to register to vote in Maryland. If you are an out-of-state student registering to vote in Maryland, fill in your social security number, NOT your drivers license ID, for Question 6.

What if I want to register in my home county or state? How can I vote?

In-State: To register in another county, complete the Maryland Voter Registration Application and mail to your county board of elections. Address information is included on the application:

After registering you have three voting options:

Early Voting: Every Maryland County has early voting locations. Find where your county's early voting locations are and return home on one of the early voting days.

Absentee Ballot Voting:  Request an absentee ballot by completing an absentee ballot application and mailing it to your county Board of Elections. Upon receiving your absentee ballot application in the mail, complete and return to your county Board of Elections office.

Vote at Your Precinct on Election Day: Return home to vote on Election Day. Find your specific polling location:

Out-of-State: Out-of-State students can use the TurboVote tool as well. Additinally, students can visit their states' Board of Elections website and print off a voter registration application and mail in by the state's deadline. Then remember to vote by absentee ballot or return home on Election Day, as not all states have early voting options.

Ballot Preview

PollValut is a tool that allows voters to preview their ballots. Voters can see candidates and ballot questions, and they can also compare their views to those of friends or organizations.
