This Presidential Election was like no other in our County. Notwithstanding completely new voting locations, drop box locations, mail-in voting procedures and extended early voting hours, 536,706 voters cast their votes in this past election, 79.52 percent of registered voters.

Call The Election Now!
There’s a process for electing President, and here in Maryland we’re sticking to it. It’s not complicated and it’s spelled out.
You get to vote for
Choose Our Leaders, Vote, Vote, Vote!
Democracy, freedom, prosperity, and safety. It’s all on the ballot. Maryland is open and waiting for your vote – every day until 8 PM November 3. Make your voice count. In this general election, this federal election, your country needs your authority to choose leaders in the White House and Congress, Judges and important questions. Here’s another copy of our Advisory Ballot. It's who and what we support!
Although election day is November 3, we Marylanders have been voting for some time. With absentee/mail in ballots and early voting the bulk of the choices will be cast before the first Tuesday in November.
