Am I eligible to vote in Maryland?

To be eligible to vote in Maryland, you must be a U.S. citizen residing in Maryland. You must also be at least 18 years old on Election Day.

You can register and vote if you are under guardianship, as may be the case for mental illness or developmental disability, as long the court hasn’t determined that you cannot vote.

You can't register or vote if you are currently in prison for a felony offense or if a court has convicted you of voter fraud.



Where Do I Vote?

Check here for your polling place. Maryland polling places are open statewide between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on election day.

How To Register in Maryland

There are several ways to register to vote in Maryland. This includes registering:

In Person

You’ll find forms at your local Board of Elections, the State Board of Elections, the Department of Health, the Department of Social Services, colleges, armed forces recruitment offices, and marriage license offices.


You can use the Voter Registration and Mail-In Ballot Request on the Board of Elections website. You must provide a Maryland ID number or driver's license number. If you do not have one of these IDs, complete the mail-in registration form.

At the DMV

You can pick up a voter registration form at most Motor Vehicle Administration offices such as the DMV. You will need an ID or a driver's license number to be able to get your form. If you do not have this, you will need to complete a mail-in form.

By Mail

Download and fill out a registration form, then mail it to your county board of electors.
