In Person Voting

Vote during Early Voting
Marylanders who would like to vote in person have the option to vote during the early voting period.

Early voting will take place over an eight-day period beginning on Monday, October 26 to Monday, November 2 (including Saturday and Sunday) from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., with early voting centers also open on election day, Tuesday, November 3.

Somerset County’s Early Voting Center is located at Somerset County Technical High School

Vote on Election Day
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are mailing every voter an application for a mail-in ballot and encourage you to vote by mail. If you prefer to vote in person, early voting centers will be open and some (but not all) neighborhood polling places will be open on Election Day. You will receive a mailing in October that will tell you where and when you can vote in person.

To make in-person voting safe, we will keep voters six feet apart and limit the number of people inside vote centers at one time. This may result in lines and wait times. The best time to vote in person is on weekends during early voting and between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Election Day.

On Election Day, approximately 350 vote centers will be open statewide, including the early voting centers. Voters can cast their vote at any vote center in their county of residence, and residents in the City of Baltimore may cast their vote at any vote center in the city.

Plan ahead to determine which voting center works best for you! The list of Election Day vote centers will be updated when the locations are finalized.

Vote centers will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

UMES students will use Washington High School (10902 Old Princess Anne Rd Princess Anne MD 21853) as their polling place.


A provisional ballot allows someone who thinks he or she is an eligible voter to vote. If the local board of elections determines that the provisional voter is registered and eligible to vote in Maryland and vote a provisional ballot, the ballot will be counted. If the voter is not eligible to vote a provisional ballot, the ballot may be rejected. Provisional ballots are counted even if they will not change the outcome of an election.

  • An election official will give you a provisional ballot application.
  • Complete and sign the application.
  • The election judge will give you a provisional ballot.
  • Fill in the oval to the left of each choice.
  • Seal your voted ballot in the envelope that is part of the application.
  • Put the envelope in the provisional ballot bag provided by the election judge.
