What is the safest, easiest, and most secure way to vote in November? By mail! Request your mail-in ballot today. voterservices.elections.maryland.gov #VoteByMail

Some Tips:
• The earlier the better! The earlier you request your ballot the earlier you will receive it.

• Send it back quickly! The earlier you send it the sooner it will be received by the Board Of Elections.

• No postage is needed! All mail-in ballots will come with a pre-addressed and pre-stamped envelope.

• Make your vote count! Be sure to follow all instructions so your ballot is not rejected for any reason. Sign and print your name, and date, in the marked spots.
