- By mail: Print a voter registration form, complete it and mail it to your local board of elections. Or call your local board or the state board of elections to request an application.

- In person: Go to your local board of elections, the state board of elections or your local Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration office. You can also register at your local Area Agency on Aging office or at several other locations listed on the state board of elections website. The deadline is 5 p.m. on Oct. 18 for the general election.
If you miss the deadline, you still can register at an early voting center in your county or at your polling place on Election Day. Bring a Maryland driver’s license, state-issued ID card, paycheck, bank statement or other document that confirms your name and address. State officials still encourage voters to meet the registration deadline to save time at the polls.
Check if you’re registered to vote through the state’s voter information portal.
Early voting starts on Thursday, October 27, 2022 and goes through Thursday, November 3, 2022. You can vote at any early voting center in Baltimore County. Each early voting center will be open continuously from 7 am to 8 pm each day. Anyone in line at 8 pm will be allowed to vote.
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.
Any registered voter can request a no-excuse mail-in ballot and vote from home in November’s general election. Apply for a mail-in ballot online, by mail or in person:

You also may go online or send a request through the mail to receive an emailed ballot that you may then print, complete and mail or hand-deliver. Your request for an emailed ballot must be received by Nov. 4.
You can designate an agent to deliver your ballot application, pick up your ballot and bring it to you. You and the person you choose must complete a mail-in ballot agent form and take it to your local board of elections.
