State Board of Elections Announces New Early Voting, Voter Registration Dates

By Bennett Leckrone

Early voting for the delayed July 19 primary will begin on July 7, according to an announcement Monday from the Maryland State Board of Elections.

The deadline to register to vote in the primary will now be June 28, and the deadline for primary voters to request a mail-in ballot is July 12, according to the Maryland Elections Administrator Linda H. Lamone said in a news release.

Early voting will run from July 7 to July 14, including on Saturday and Sunday, Lamone said. Voters can also register to vote at early voting centers or at their polling place on primary day.

The adjusted election timeline comes after the Maryland Court of Appeals pushed back the primary election from June 28 to July 19 amid court challenges to local, state legislative and congressional redistricting plans. A trial for congressional redistricting wrapped up last week, with the judge in that case indicating she would rule sometime this week; a trial for petitions against the new legislative map is set to kick off before a special magistrate in the Court of Appeals Wednesday.
