STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO VOTE
PATIENT VOTING TEAM

Voters can request an absentee ballot be sent by mail or fax until the Tuesday before the election, or by internet by the Friday before the election. Voters can have their agent apply for an absentee ballot until the polls close on Election Day.
COVID-19 and Patient Voting
Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the State Board of Elections and local board offices are currently closed to the public, therefore making an in-person ballot request is NOT available.
By emergency proclamation of the Governor, the 2020 Presidential Primary Election has been postponed to June 2, 2020.
This election will be primarily a “vote by mail” election. This means that the state of Maryland will automatically mail a ballot to all eligible voters. You should receive your ballot in early to mid May. You do not need to ask for a ballot to receive one. Your ballot will be mailed to the address we have on file. If you want your ballot mailed to another address or download it from our website, please visit our Absentee Voting page. All mailed ballots included a return envelope and prepaid postage.
