How do I change my party affiliation?


You can now also change your party affiliation online or submit a new Maryland Voter Registration Application or a signed written request to your county Board of Elections.

I just moved. What do I do about my registration?

You can now update your registration online to reflect a change of name or address. You can also notify your county Board of Elections of your address change by submitting a new Voter Registration Application or a signed written notice.

Changes in registration information are sent to your county Board of Elections if you complete a Change of Address form at the Motor Vehicle Administration and do not indicate on that form that you do not want to change your voter registration information.

Please note that it is your responsibility to make sure that your voter registration change has been received and processed. Accordingly, if you do not receive your new Voter Notification Card within three weeks, contact your county Board of Elections.

What if I can't make it to the polls on election day?

You can request an Absentee ballot application for 2014 elections (PDF). You can fill out this form online, but you must print, sign and mail in your application to your county Board of Elections or to the State Board of Elections.

Still have questions?

The Maryland Board of Elections has a list of Frequently Asked Questions on their website.
