Returning your Ballot

First Class Mail – U.S. Post Office We are urging all Marylanders to return their ballots as soon as possible due to backlogs at the U.S. Postal Service.  Your ballot comes with a postage-paid return envelope, so submitting your ballot by mail is free. Your ballot must be postmarked on or before November 3. Putting your ballot in a mailbox on November 3 does not mean it is postmarked.

Drop Box Locations Marylanders can use a ballot drop box to return their mail-in ballot. At least 200 drop box locations will be available statewide. Ballot drop boxes will be open until 8 pm on November 3. The list of drop box locations will be posted here when the locations are finalized:
