You Can Register To Vote On Election Day For 2020 7th Congressional District Special Primary Election

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you thought you'd missed out on registering to vote by the special primary election, think again!

Eligible Maryland residents in the 7th Congressional District can now register and vote on election day, February 4, 2020.

UPDATE: The special election polls are closed. See the results here. 

The last day to register was originally January 14, but now residents can take advantage of same-day registration.

To do so, you must be eligible to vote in Maryland, go to your correct polling place where you live, and bring a document proving residency.

The documents that can be used are a driver's license, ID card, or a change of address card, or a paycheck, bank statement, utility bill, or another government document with the individual's name and current address.
