Casting Your Ballot
On Election Day, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. To ensure your entire ballot counts, you must always vote at your assigned polling place. Find your polling location.
Elderly and Handicap Accessible
If your designated polling place is not accessible for the elderly or handicapped, you may make an application for reassignment to an accessible polling place. A Maryland voter who is elderly or disabled and who wishes to vote in person in the April 26, 2016 Primary Election or the November 8, 2016 General Election has until close of the business on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 for the Primary Election and Tuesday, October 18, 2016 for the General Election, to request that the voter be reassigned to an accessible polling place if the voter's home polling place is inaccessible.
A request for reassignment must be in writing and reach the appropriate local board of elections by close of April 5, 2016 for the Primary Election and October 18, 2016 for the General Election. At that time, the local board of elections will reassign the voter to a polling place that is accessible, where the voter may vote the ballot of his or her home precinct.
