Here’s what you need to know about the June 2 primary election

Apr 20, 2020

Maryland’s primary election will be held on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 through mail-in ballot, with limited in-person voting available for those who are unable to vote by mail. To reduce the spread of coronavirus, we strongly recommend that voters who can vote by mail do so.

The Maryland State Board of Elections will automatically mail a ballot to the address that they have on file. You do not need to request a ballot to receive one. If you need to register to vote or update your current address, you must do so by Wednesday, May 27, 2020. Postage on your ballot is prepaid. You DO NOT need to add any stamps on your return envelope.

Voters who wish to drop off their ballots may do so at designated drop off locations during the early voting period from Thursday, May 21, 2020 through Tuesday, June 2, 2020. If dropping off your ballot, you must do so by 8:00 PM on June 2. The State Board of Elections will announce drop off locations soon.

If you are unable to vote by mail, you may vote in-person on primary day, June 2, at a designated voting center in your jurisdiction. If you have not yet registered to vote, you may do so in-person on primary day at your voting center. The State Board of Elections will announce in-person voting locations soon.

Your mail-in ballot must be postmarked by Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
