Maryland 2020 Election Guide: Where And When To Vote, List Of Important Races

Last Updated Nov. 2, 2020

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Tuesday is Election Day, marking the final day to vote in an election that has been significantly changed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Election Day is Marylanders' final opportunity to cast their ballots in the 2020 Election. Mail-in ballots must also be postmarked by that date, though they will still be accepted until Nov. 13.

If you're not registered to vote, there is still time. You can register in-person at polling locations on Election Day and during early voting.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m., though anyone in line by 8 p.m. will be permitted to cast their ballot. The best time to vote will be between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., officials said.

Statewide, there will be more than 300 voting centers open on Election Day. Voters can vote at any location in their county of residence, while Baltimore City residents can vote at any location in the city.

The number of voters inside a given voting center will be limited and people will remain six feet apart to practice social distancing.

Voters will also be asked to wear masks inside the polling place, the state elections board said. Those who have a disability or medical condition that prevents them from wearing one will be given a provisional ballot and asked to vote outside the voting room.
