I know, Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. But with early voting, you can exercise your right to vote in Maryland’s general election from October 25 through November 1. This video shares my thoughts on the right to vote, our most sacred of civic responsibilities.   

Go out early and vote today. 

Think of the hundreds of thousands of people in our nation’s history who have died to protect the right to vote.

Go out early and vote today. 

What if it rains November 6? Or you have car trouble. Or you or your child are sick?

Go out early and vote today. 

Regardless of your political affiliation, now is the time.

Not registered yet? Same day registration or address changes are available during early voting. Same day registration is not available on Election Day.

Go Out Early and Vote Today Tip

Early voting for the 2018 Maryland General Election runs Thursday, October 25 through Thursday, November 1, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, every day, weekends included.

According to prior voting patterns, the best days to avoid delays will be Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28. For more information about early voting, visit elections.maryland.gov/voting/early_voting.html

Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. It’s a good day to vote. But if you take advantage of early voting, Election Day can be today.
