On Friday, the Howard County Board of Elections finalized Howard County’s early voting sites. Residents can vote early between October 26 – November 2. Election day is Tuesday, November 3. To see the full list of early voting sites, click here, and to see election day voting sites click here.

“We want to ensure our residents are informed and empowered on the many options they have to vote this November,” said County Executive Calvin Ball. “Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and we must ensure that we are providing safe and easy methods to make sure that all Howard County residents are engaged and aware of how to vote in the general election this November. I’m grateful for the staff at the Howard County Board of Elections who have been working around the clock to help ensure voters, of all abilities, are able to cast their vote in an easy, and safe manner. We will continue to work and assist our Board of Elections through consistent communications over the next two months ensuring that voter turnout Howard County is not impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Unlike the 2020 Primary Elections, voters will not automatically receive a mail-in ballot. Instead, voters will receive an application to receive their ballot through the mail. Voters must submit a request in order to receive their ballot by mail. To request your ballot right now, please click here. The deadline to request your mail-in ballot is October 20th. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Howard County voters are urged to cast their vote by mail.

Mail-in ballots can also be returned to a ballot drop box which will be located at the Howard County Board of Elections Office, Meadowbrook Athletic Center, Marriotts Ridge High School, Reservoir High School, Long Reach High School, and Wilde Lake High School.
