Voter Registration


  • US Citizens/Maryland residents who are 16 years old and 18 years old by the next general election can register to vote in Maryland.












Voter Registration




Yes, but you must apply for a mail-in ballot first.

The latest information about mail-in voting can be found on the Maryland Board of Elections website. Note: Absentee ballots are now called mail-in ballots.

Once you receive your ballot, follow the instructions on the ballot and then:

  • Mail your ballot. If you mail your voted ballot, make sure that the envelope is postmarked on or before November 3, 2020. Your voted ballot must be received by your local board of elections by 10 am on November 13, 2020.
  • Submit your vote in a drop-box. Visit any drop box location to submit your ballot. Ballot drop boxes will remain open until 8 pm on November 3.







  • Most voters do not need to show ID. If you have voted in Maryland before, you do not need to provide ID to voter in person.
  • You may need to bring ID or valid proof of current residence if you are voting for the first time, if you registered to vote by mail, or in case your name is not on the registered voters list at the polling place for any reason. More information for Maryland voters.
