Tuesday marks the deadline to register to vote in the general election and The MSUSpokesman wants to make sure that every member of the community fulfills their civic duty. Unlike tradition, the results of this year’s presidential election may not be declared on Nov. 3. The coronavirus has reshaped the way Americans will be able to vote safely, which includes mail-in-ballots. To prepare for the election, we wanted to simplify the registration process and your voting options because let’s be honest, it has all gotten pretty confusing. Detailed below is a Baltimore City voter registration guide. Print it out, bookmark it and share it with your friends and family because your vote counts this year more than ever. 

 

Registration eligibility checklist

  1. Be a U.S. citizen 
  2. Be a Maryland resident 
  3. Be at least 16-years-old (you can register if you are at least 16-years-old but cannot vote unless you will be at least 18-years-old by the next general election).
  4. Not convicted of buying or selling votes 
  5.  Not convicted of a felony, if you have, you’ve completed an ordered sentence of imprisonment 
  6. Not found by a court to be incapable of voting due to psychiatric disability

Election Day in-person voting center locations

In-person voting will take place on Nov. 3. Centers will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Voters in line by closing time will be able to vote. A voter may also register or update their address and complete a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot allows someone who thinks he or she is an eligible voter to vote, but who is not in the electronic poll book. A provisional ballot will only count if the Local Board of Election determines that the voter is registered and eligible to vote in Maryland. You do not need any documents to vote in the state of Maryland.
