Early voting centers are open today from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will remain open daily through July 14.

There are 96 early voting centers in the state, including at least one in every county. Voters can choose to cast a ballot at any early voting location in their home county. You can find a full list of early voting locations here.

Voters who plan to cast ballots in-person on primary election day, July 19, must do so at their assigned polling places, which will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. that day.

Mail-in ballots were previously sent out to voters who requested them and can be returned through the July 19 primary date, including at dropboxes throughout the state. A list of dropbox locations is here.

Voters can continue to request mail-in ballots by mail through July 12. The application is here. After that date, mail-in ballots can be picked up at local elections offices.

Completed mail ballots must be postmarked or dropped in a dropbox before 8 p.m. on July 19.

Marylanders who are not currently registered to vote can register during early voting or on Election Day, and vote the same day. Information on registration is here.
