Voter Guide

Vote Safe, Vote By Mail

The special general election in the 7th Congressional District will be held on Tuesday, April 28th from 7am-8pm. There are several important changes made to the election procedure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 7th Congressional District election is being conducted mainly by mail-in ballot, and there will be only one actual polling place on Tuesday, April 28th for Baltimore County voters who reside in the 7th Congressional District:

Martin’s West

The 7th District special general election will be conducted mainly by mail-in ballot, with only 1 in-person voting locations listed above (Martin's West), available for those who are unable to vote by mail. Here are commonly asked questions about this special election and guidance for residents on how to vote safely and conveniently. For further questions, please visit www.elections.maryland.gov or contact the State Board at 1-800-222-8683. 

  1. Why is there a special election in Maryland’s 7th Congressional District? The special election is being held to fill the seat left vacant due to the passing of Representative Elijah Cummings.

  2. What is the date for the special general election for Maryland’s 7th Congressional District? Tuesday, April 28, 2020, 7am-8pm.

  3. What is the safest way to vote? To reduce the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus, voters are strongly encouraged to vote by mail. The State Board of Elections has mailed ballots to all eligible voters in the 7th District. No postage is needed to return your ballot - you will get a postage paid return envelope with your ballot.

  4. Do voters need to request an absentee ballot? No. The State Board of Elections mailed ballots to all eligible active voters in the 7th District on April 8th.

  5. What is the deadline by which voters must mail in their ballots? Voted ballots must be postmarked no later than April 28, 2020. Completed ballots may also be dropped off on April 28th at collection boxes located at Martin’s West between 7am and 8pm.

  6. How do voters know if they are registered to vote in the 7th District? If you aren't sure if you are registered, or at what address, check your voter registration status on the State Board of Elections website at https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/VoterSearch. If you do not have internet access, call 1-800-222-8683 and ask a State Board of Elections representative to check your registration.

  7. What kind of identification is required to cast a ballot by mail? If you are a registered voter in the 7th District and voted before, no identification is required to receive or submit a ballot by mail. A very small number of newly registered voters may need to provide ID with their voted ballots. If you have to provide ID, there will be instructions with your ballot.

  8. Is identification required to register to vote? If you use the State Board’s online system to register, you must enter your Maryland driver's license number or MVA-issued state ID number, the date MVA issued your license or ID card, and the last 4 digits of your Social Security 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 must enter the last 4 digits of your US social security number. If you provide a license or State ID number, your 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 use the paper application to register, you must also provide your Maryland driver's license number or MVA-issued state ID number if you have one. If you don’t have one, you must provide the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. If you don’t have either number, check box 6c. If you check box 6c, you might be required to show ID before voting for the first time.

  9. How will voters know that their ballots will be counted? You can check that your ballot was counted on the State Board of Elections’ website at https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/VoterSearch. If you do not have internet access, call 1-800-222-8683 and ask a State Board of Elections representative to check the status of your voted ballot. The information will be posted about 10 days after the election.

  10. Is it too late to update my address for this election? At this late date, it is best to bring documents with you to Martin’s West on April 28th to verify your identity and your address.
