To vote in the upcoming election, Maryland residents who are eligible to vote but are not yet registered - including 17 year olds who will be 18 years old or older on or before the November 6th General Election - must register to vote. Eligible individuals can now register to vote or update addresss information at www. Applications can also be hand-delivered or mailed.

Online applications must be submitted by 9 p.m. on October 16, and hand-delivered applications must be received by the Baltimore County Board of Elections by 9 p.m. on the same day.

Most of Maryland's polling places are accessible to voters with disabilities.

This request must be submitted in writing by 9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2012. The form to request a new polling place is available at (type "polling place reassignment" in the Search field). On receipt of a timely request, the Baltimore County Board of Elections will determine if there is an accessible polling place with the same ballot as the voter's home precinct and notify the voter of the status of his or her request.

On State Board of Elections' website, a voter can also verify his or her voter registration status and find out if his or her assigned polling place is accessible. To find this information, a voter can visit and click on the "Look up your voter registration" box.
