Election Day Voting
Voters who prefer to vote on election day can vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. On election day, polling places will be open for voting from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. To avoid delays, voters should try to vote between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
Where Do I Vote?
During early voting, Baltimore County voters should vote at a designated early voting center in Baltimore County. Centers are located at accessible facilities with adequate parking and within a convenient driving distance for most voters in the county. Information about early voting centers and early voting in general is available at: elections.maryland.gov/voting/early_voting.html
On election day, Baltimore County voters should vote at their assigned polling place. Voters can find their assigned precinct by looking at the voter notification card they received from the Baltimore County Board of Elections or by clicking the Find Your Polling Place link at elections.maryland.gov. Voters who have moved but have not updated their address with the Baltimore County Board of Elections should search for the polling place for their new address or contact the Baltimore County Board of Elections. It is important for voters to vote in the polling place for their new address, because only those contests for which voters are eligible to vote will be counted.
How Do I Vote?
Maryland elections are conducted with a paper-based voting system. Voters will cast votes by marking and scanning paper ballots. Most voters will use a pen to mark a paper ballot by hand and voters unable to mark a ballot by hand will use a ballot marking device. All voters will insert their marked paper ballots into a scanner. Instructions will be available to help voters familiarize themselves with the ballot and how to vote. Voters may also ask an election judge to explain how to vote on the voting system, but a voter must vote alone, unless the voter is unable to do so because of disability, inability to write, or inability to read the ballot.
