Maryland will be implementing "Same Day Voter Registration" during early voting for the 2016 Presidential Primary and General elections. Same day registration on election day becomes effective for the 2020 Presidential election. More information will be posted when it becomes available.
Generally, you may register to vote any time voter registration is open. Registration closes beginning at 9:00 pm on the 21st day preceding an election and remains closed until the 11th day after the election, unless modified by law or executive order.
Any voter registration application received when registration is closed will be held by the election office and processed when registration re-opens. Your registration will not be effective and you will not be eligible to vote until registration re-opens and you have received your Voter Notification Card (VNC).
As long as you remain a resident of the county and keep your address current with the election office, your voter registration in Maryland is permanent.
