Maryland: Voting at The Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM

Do I need to present identification when I vote?

  • Some first time voters in Maryland will be asked to show ID before voting. If you are asked to show ID, please show an election judge one of the following forms of ID:
  • A copy of a current and valid photo ID (i.e., Maryland driver's license, MVA-issued ID card, student, employee, or military ID card, U.S. passport, or any other State or federal government-issued ID card); or
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows your name and address. Current means that the document is dated within 3 months of the election.


  • If you moved less than 3 weeks before the election, you may vote at the polling place for your old address or vote a provisional ballot at your new address. If you find the polling place for your new address is, use the polling place search on our voter services site .
  • In a general election, you can write-in the name of a candidate, but in a primary election, you cannot. Instructions on how to cast a write-in vote and a listing of the filed write-in candidates will be posted at the early voting centers and at your polling place on election day.
  • When you go vote, you can wear clothing, buttons or stickers with political messages, but you must leave the early voting center or polling place immediately after voting.


  • If you want to vote during early voting or on election day, find out where you can vote.
  • During early voting, go to an early voting center in the county where you live. All early voting centers are open from 10 am to 8 pm, except on Sundays. Early voting centers are open on Sunday from 12 pm to 6 pm.
