Early voting for the general election runs Thursday, Oct. 25, through Nov. 1. Polls are open daily, including Saturday and Sunday. According to the State Board of Elections, the first day and last two days are the busiest times to vote. The weekend days typically have the least traffic.
The polls will be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. All are eligible to vote early unless they have cast an absentee ballot. Any eligible voter who is not yet registered may sign up at early voting sites and cast a ballot the same day.
In general, you will not need an ID to vote. Some people who are voting for the first time in Maryland, as well as those registering at early voting sites, will be asked to show identification. Valid forms of ID include a state-issued driver’s license or ID card; a change-of-address card; your paycheck, bank statement or utility bill, or another government document with your name and current address.
