Registration Information

Make sure you read the appropriate registration information before you register online using Maryland's Online Voter Registration System (OLVR) or before you download the Voter Registration Application.

Notice for Completing an Online Application

To submit your registration electronically, you must provide a valid Maryland-issued state ID number or driver's license number. If you reside outside of the United States or are a member of the military or spouse or dependent of a member of the military, you can provide the last four digits of your US social security number. If you provide a Maryland-issued ID, the signature on file with the MVA will become your official voter registration signature. If you provide a social security number, it will be used as your official voter registration signature.

If you do not have the required ID or if you do not wish to submit your application online, you may use this website to complete your application and then print out your application at any point in the process. You will need to complete the information by hand, sign the application, and mail it to your local board of elections.

Instructions for Mailing a Printed Application

Please fill out and print the Voter Registration Application form following the instructions provided with it. Be sure to sign the form where appropriate before mailing it. The Voter Registration Application form cannot be processed without an ORIGINAL signature.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the Voter Registration Application form. We encourage you to fill out the form directly from Adobe Acrobat Reader and then print and sign it.

Forms can be MAILED to the State Board of Elections (see address) or to your county's Board of Elections. Do NOT fax or e-mail your Voter Registration Application.
