This election will be primarily a “vote by mail” election. This means that all eligible voters will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. You should receive your ballot in early to mid May. You do not need to ask for a ballot to receive one.
Election officials will mail your ballot to the address on file. If you want your ballot mailed to another address or download it from our website, please visit the Absentee Voting page https://elections.maryland.gov/voting/absentee.html. All mailed ballots included a return envelope and prepaid postage.
- To reduce the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus, we recommend that voters who can vote by mail do so. Voted ballots must be postmarked on or before Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
- Voters who prefer to drop off their ballots can do so at designated ballot drop off locations from Thursday, May 21, 2020 through Tuesday, June 2, 2020: https://elections.maryland.gov/elections/2020/20_PP_Vote%20Centers_and_Drop%20off%20Locations.pdf
