Registered Voter Information Changes
There are procedures in place to make changes to your voter information. Some of the reasons you may have to make changes are below.
- a County Resident making a change of address or name but, you still live in Baltimore County
- a County resident moving to another Maryland county
- a County resident moving to another state
- changing your party affiliation
- needing a new voter card
For the 2016 Presidential Primary, the deadline to change your party is April 5, 2016, by 9 p.m. You may change address(es), names or report corrections by 9 p.m. on April 5, 2016.
You can make a written request to change name, address, or make corrections to your voter record. Include your full name, date of birth. State clearly your old address and your new address, if you are changing your address. Do not use a work address or P.O. box. Provide your signature. Nothing can be processed without a signature. Mail it the Election Board.
If you are registered in Maryland, you may apply to the local Election Board using a voter registration application. You may also fill out the back of your voter notification card and send it to the local board you are registering with. Remember to include your signature.
Maryland residents moving to another state will register as a new applicant in that state. To take yourself off of Maryland's records fill out the back of your voter notification card or send us an application to cancel your record in Maryland.
Changing party affiliation affects only the Primary Election. Only the Republican and Democratic Parties are running in the Primary. The Voter can vote for whoever they want in the General Election. If you wish to change your party, you must do so before April 15, 2016, 9 p.m. Fax or mail a request in the form of a signed letter to the Baltimore County Board of Elections. Clearly state your present party and the party you wish to change to.
You do not need a voter notification card to vote at the polls. It is not considered a form of ID. However, if you need a voter card to take a course or join a club, you may request a new voter notification card. Mail a signed written request to the Baltimore County Board of Elections. Include your full name, current address, date of birth and one dollar for a processing fee. The processing fee may be in the form of a one dollar bill.
