  • General Election Day: Nov. 8
  • Mail-in ballot deadline: Must be postmarked or placed in ballot drop box by Nov. 8

Register to vote

In order to register to vote, voters can complete the registration form online or print it, fill it out and mail it to the state or county board of elections. Registration requires a valid Maryland-issued state ID number or driver’s license number, according to the board of elections website. Maryland voters living outside the U.S. including military personnel or spouses can provide the last four digits of their Social Security numbers.

If unable to register online by June 28, voters can go to an early voting center in the county and bring documentation proving they live in Anne Arundel County. A Maryland license, ID card, change of address card, paycheck, bank statement or utility bill works so long as the document lists the name of the voter and the new address. Voters may also register the same day they vote with Maryland documentation, said Anne Arundel County Board of Elections Director David Garreis.
