Voting by mail-in ballot is the best way to make sure your health is protected and your vote is counted on November 3rd. There will be in-person voting options. However, we strongly urge Marylanders to cast your ballot by mail.
Watch this video made with our partners from 1199SEIU:
All registered voters in Maryland will receive an application for an absentee ballot.
Rather than wait for the application to be sent to you, however, we encourage you to immediately request an absentee ballot electronically through www.elections.maryland.gov
Absentee ballots can be sent to you by mail or e-mail
By Mail: Ballots sent by US Postal Service will include a pre-paid postage return envelope. No additional stamps are required. These mailed ballots will be processed (and counted) more easily than the e-mailed ballots described below
By E-mail: Ballots requested by e-mail will be sent as an attachment that must be printed out and returned by US Postal Service (or in a certified election drop box). Downloaded electronic ballots must be returned with two stamps
Absentee ballot applications will be sent to the address you used when you registered to vote
Ballot applications and ballots will not be forwarded
Ballot applications will include a return envelope with pre-paid return postage
Voters must mail back their own ballot through the US Postal Service or submit in dropboxes
Ballots must be signed and filled out with a black pen
Ballots must be submitted and postmarked on or before November 3rd and postage will be pre-paid
