ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Maryland State Board of Elections reminds voters that tomorrow – Oct. 18 – is the deadline to update their registration information online and to register in advance to vote in the 2022 General Election.

Voters should review their registration information online or contact their local board of elections office. Eligible Marylanders can register to vote or update their registration information in advance of the Nov. 8 election using SBE’s online system, completing and submitting a paper application (in Spanish),, or by completing an application in-person at their local board of elections office.  Registering to vote or updating information now will make voting during early voting or on election day a faster process.

Once Marylanders have registered or confirmed their registration information is up to date, SBE encourages voters to review the list of early voting centers, some of which have changed since July’s Primary Election. The complete list of early voting centers is posted here (in Spanish). Early voting will be held from Thursday, Oct. 27 through Thursday, Nov. 3. Early voting centers will be open each day during that window from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters wishing to cast their ballots in person on Election Day can find a complete list of Election Day polling locations posted toward the bottom of the 2022 Elections landing page under “Polling Place and Precinct Reports.” The best option for individual voters to identify their polling place is to use the Voter Look-Up website. Election Day polling places will be open Nov. 8 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters who prefer to vote by mail or ballot drop box must request a mail-in ballot be sent by the U.S. Postal Service no later than Nov.1. The deadline to request a link to a mail-in ballot be sent via email is Nov. 4.

Ballots being cast by mail must be postmarked by Nov. 8. Properly completed ballots mailed by the deadline will be accepted until Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. Voters may also cast their mail-in ballots via a secure ballot drop box. There are 281 ballot boxes located across the state. A list of the ballot box locations is available online (in Spanish). Ballots may be submitted by 8 p.m. on Nov. 8 at any drop box location in a voter’s county of residence.

Marylanders interested in serving as election judges can complete SBE’s online interest form to be considered for this important civic role.

Residents can also contact their local board of elections for more information on serving as an election judge.

  1. *uneasy about cannabis? We have medical cannabis legal & it is rationed, or supervised. There is an amount you can get each month + no more. If you’re comfortable with it that way, ok. Cannabis cards are almost effortless to get. Its ok to feel uneasy about legalizing cannabis. 90% that its crazy for a a plant to be illegal + 10% that you’re not interested in the erratic behavior that can come with cannabis use. I have a feeling that our taxes are not going to go down even if cannabis gets the hell- taxed- out- of- it.

  2. once again, we’ve got these judges to deal with , appeals court judges, who don’t bother to put- up signs because they don’t think they have to, they think they’re separate from the rest of the candidates. Yes\ no judges. They’re the only ones on the ballot who are unopposed, who can’t be challenged. You can’t challenge an appeals court judge, its yes\ no. If it ends up being no [has it ever?], then someone else is appointed. What other office can’t be challenged? Judges don’t live in the world like everyone else does. Its no wonder judges have separate entrances into the courthouse, its to make you think that a sentence isn’t a weapon. Of course judges aren’t searched when they enter the courthouse, of course they aren’t subject to a search. They don’t have to live the life of those that come before them.
