Early Voting in Maryland kicks off today and runs through November 3rd. Here is some important information you need to know:
2016 Presidential Elections
For the 2016 elections, you can vote in person before election day.
Who can vote early?
Any person that is eligible to register to vote can vote.
Registered voters have always been able to vote during early voting, but now individuals who are eligible but not yet registered can register and vote.
To register and vote during early voting, go to an early voting center in the county where you live and bring a document that proves where you live. This document can be your MVA-issued license, ID card, or change of address card, or your paycheck, bank statement, utility bill, or other government document with your name and new address. You will be able to register to vote and vote.
