2020 Maryland Election Details: (more)
2020 GENERAL ELECTION
Important Note: A recent change in the law requires the State Board of Elections and each local board of elections to refer to absentee ballots as “mail-in ballots” and absentee voting as “mail-in voting.” Please note that this change in terminology does NOT change the process of mail-in voting.
There are many ways to participate in the 2020 Presidential Election. Due to COVID-19, all Marylanders are encouraged to vote by mail.
To vote by mail, you must request a mail-in ballot from the State Board of Elections or your local board. Your request for a mail-in ballot must be received by October 20, 2020.
Mail-in ballots must be postmarked or placed in a designated drop box by 8pm on November 3, 2020.
Please see the directions below to request and return your mail-in ballot.
If you cannot vote by mail or want to vote in person, Marylanders can vote during early voting or on election day.
• Early voting will be held for 8 days and begin on October 26, 2020 through November 2, 2020. You can vote at any early voting center in the county you live in.
• Election Day is November 3, 2020. You can vote at any election day voting center in the county you live in.
