Baltimore City Ballot Voting Instructions and Locations

Mail-in Ballots: Ballot Voting Instructions  

Open envelope to find official ballot, pre-marked envelope and instructions.

VOTE — Completely fill in the oval to the left of the name of your choice with black ink. (Do not cross or erase, or your vote may not count).

When ballot is complete, place the ballot and any other required documents in the return envelope.

COMPLETE THE OATH — Sign and date the oath at the back of the return envelope after you sealed it.

Place the envelope in the mail (no postage required) or return the envelope to one of the ballot drop-off locations below.

PLEASE NOTE: While mail-in ballots display the original Primary date of April 28, the ballots are in fact valid for the June 2 election. Your ballot will come with a postage-prepaid return envelope, so you do not need to attach stamps to return your voted ballot.  Remember to sign the oath on the back of the return envelope after you have placed your ballot inside the envelope and sealed it. Only one ballot per envelope may be mailed at a time. Your ballot must be postmarked on or before June 2, 2020.
