Hi Maryland, if you want to vote in the  2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If you  have a Maryland ID or driver's license, you can   register online.

If not, you’ll need to print out  an application form and mail it in. Links to both   are at But either way  you register, you need to do it by October 18th.   If you miss that deadline, don’t worry.  You can still register on election day   at your polling location.

Then it’s time to make your plan   for how you’re going to vote. If you’re going to be out of town on   election day or just want to vote early from the  comfort of your own couch, you can request that   your ballot be mailed to you. You have until  November 1st to request an absentee ballot,   but the sooner you ask for one, the sooner  you can get it, fill it out, and mail it back   so that it gets to your County Recorder’s  office no later than November 8th.   You can also vote in person early from October  27th through November 3rd at an early voting   location in your county.

You can find all those  locations and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 7am to 8pm. If you’re registering at the polls, make sure   to bring a proof of address with you, like a  driver’s license, passport, military or tribal ID,   or a utility bill, paycheck, or bank statement  with your name and address on it.   So once you have your plan for how you’re going  to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re   going to vote, and what proof of address you’re  going to bring. You just need to follow the plan,   and go vote on or before November 8th.

If you want to know ahead of time everything   that’s on your ballot, you can find a sample  ballot at so you have time   to research candidates and make your decisions.  You don’t have to vote for everything for that   ballot to count, but this is your best chance to  choose who gets to make decisions about your life:   all the way from Congress to your  city council or school board.   There are links for everything you need to  register, vote early, find your polling place,   and locate your sample ballot at   Thank you for voting!
