ANNAPOLIS — Maryland residents who are eligible to vote in the state’s June 2 Primary have until May 27 to pre-register for the vote-by-mail election. Residents can use Maryland’s Online Voter Registration System or submit a voter registration application to their local board of elections or the State Board of Elections.

Registration applications must be postmarked by the May 27 deadline in order to vote in the June 2 Primary election. Those using the Online Voter Registration System must submit their application by May 27 at 11:59 p.m.

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, voting for the June 2 election will be conducted primarily by mail, with limited locations to submit completed ballots at designated drop-off locations or to vote in-person on election day.

“Registering to vote in advance of the election makes the voting process itself faster and safer,” said Maryland Administrator of Elections Linda Lamone. “Those who are registered early may submit their ballots by mail and avoid bringing their completed ballots to a designated ballot drop-off location or voting in-person on election day.”
