ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Maryland State Board of Elections (SBE) reminds voters that early voting for the 2022 Primary Election begins this Thursday, July 7, and continues through Thursday, July 14. Early voting runs each day during that period, including Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A complete list of early voting centers for the Primary Election is available online (Spanish version). Following the recent redistricting process, county district, state legislative district and congressional district information – as well as polling place information – for some registered voters has changed. For this reason, it is important that all registered voters confirm their current district and polling place information online or by calling or visiting the office of their local board of elections.

Eligible Marylanders may register to vote in-person during early voting and on Primary Election Day, July 19. Voters can register to vote and vote early at any early voting center in the county in which they reside.

Voters wishing to register to vote and vote in person on Primary Election Day – July 19 – may do so at their polling place.

Those who wish to cast their ballots by mail or via one of Maryland’s 288 ballot drop boxes must request a mail-in ballot from the State Board of Elections or their local board of elections. Requests for a mail-in ballot for the Primary Election must be received by July 12, 2022.

Each of Maryland’s 288 ballot boxes are available for use until July 19 at 8 p.m. Voters can return their mail-in ballots using any official ballot box in their county of residence. A complete list of ballot box locations is available online (Spanish version).

The local boards of elections continue to look for voters to serve as election judges.  Interested voters can learn more and apply here.

  1. Yup! I saw a bunch of democrats loading up their boxes of ballots. It’s that time again folks! Let the games begin…

    1. LOL. Well there were over 14,000 Covid deaths so they got at least that many ballots on hand.

  2. i’m sorry to see that the board of elections is accommodating illegal immigrants by making things available in spanish.

  3. if you find that by july 20th, you haven’t submitted your ballot, yet, please go- ahead + mail- it- in, anyway. Statisstics are kept about who tried- to- vote.

  4. this 4 years, from 2018 – 2022, lets keep- n- mind: we had a state- of- emergency declared. We had to wear masks. + although we’re not still mask wearing (intentional or unnintentional) at election time, lets not look past it. Lets not look past the stay- at- home orders, the closings of things, the unexpected unemployment , keep feeling vaccination _ + all of that. Don’t forget it when it comes time to the ballot box. Its ok if you base this whole election on the state of emergency + how it was dealt with + how it was reacted to. Were there intentional or unintentional overreactions? The state of emergency\ mask wearing is very much a part of this election. Even if was the good swift kick- in- the- butt you needed to change careers, get redirected or whatever. For some, its been a most positive experience, for others, they’re stil recovering. Yeah, but how did they deal with the mask- wearing, how did they deal with the state of emergency? (I would like to think no one had the attitude: the mask wearing has to be lifted by election time!)
