Maryland Voters

Request Your Mail-in Ballot

Due to COVID-19, all Marylanders are encouraged to vote by mail.

To vote by mail, you must request a mail-in ballot from the State Board of Elections or your local board.

Your request for a mail-in ballot must be received by October 20, 2020.

Maryland Voter Guidance

The Voting page from the State Board of Elections includes the lists of all early voting and Election Day voting centers in Maryland, information about how voters cast their ballots, guidance to assist voters with disabilities, and more.

Become an Election Judge/Poll Worker

The United States is facing a record shortage of poll workers/election judges this year due to the coronavirus, and Maryland is no exception. Our democracy depends on ordinary people who make sure elections run smoothly and everyone’s vote is counted. You can make sure we have a safe, fair, efficient election for all, and get paid in the process.
