register-to-voteThe deadline to register to vote, update an address, and request an alternate polling place for this election is Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at 9 p.m.

While there are tons of web sites that’ll check if you’re registered, many of them also snatch up your email address and send you obnoxious emails. To skip that, it’s best to go to the Official Maryland Board of Elections web site HERE.

While there, you can also”

  • Review your voter registration record.
  • Request a duplicate voter registration card.
  • Find out where to vote.
  • Find out your voting districts.
  • Find out your local board of elections.
  • See the status of your absentee or provisional ballot.
  • View your sample ballot.

To vote in the upcoming general election, Maryland residents who are eligible to vote but are not yet registered – including 17-year-olds who will be 18 years of age or older on or before the November 8 General Election – must register by 9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18. This is also the last day for registered voters to update their address at their local board of elections.

Residents with a Maryland driver’s license or MVA-issued ID may register to vote or change their address online by 9:00 pm Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at

Voters and members of the military, their spouses and dependents who are overseas and who do not have a Maryland driver’s license or MVA-issued ID, may also register or change their address online using different identifying information.

Paper voter registration applications must be hand-delivered or mailed to the voter’s local board of elections.  A hand-delivered application must be received by the local board of elections by 9:00 pm on October 18, 2016, and a mailed application must be postmarked by October 18, 2016.

    If you have to check to see if you are registered to vote then please don’t vote. You either registered or you didn’t, how can people not remember.
