Election Day 2020 in Maryland: Where to find live coverage and returns

The Baltimore Sun will have live coverage from the polls Tuesday, Nov. 3, as well as returns once they start being tallied. Check back here for everything you need to know on Election Day.

In the meantime, here’s what we know, and what to expect.


What’s already happening?

Voting is underway in Maryland, which is offering a hybrid election this fall, giving voters the option of voting in person or casting a mail-in ballot. Early voting began on Monday and will continue through Nov. 2, and voters will also be able to vote on Election Day.


When are polls open?

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. You can find voting locations here.

How many people have voted?

More than 1.6 million people have already voted in Maryland – 1.1 million of them via mail-in ballots. Mail-in ballots can still be returned through Election Day either in ballot drop boxes or via the mail which must be postmarked by 8 p.m. on election night.

When will we know the results?

Unlike years past, the returns released on election night will still be incomplete. After polls close, the State Board of Elections will release partial results that include all votes cast in person that day and during early voting as well as any ballots counted prior to Election Day. All boards of elections in the Baltimore region have already begun counting ballots.

Local election boards will continue counting mail-in ballots after Election Day, releasing more returns at the end of each day. Ballots must be received by Nov. 13 to be counted.
