Special Election for 7th Congressional District
Voting During the COVID-19 Health Emergency Special Congressional District 7 Election Information - Mail-In Ballots
Due to the COVID-19 health emergency, the April 28, 2020 Special General Election for the 7th Congressional District will be conducted principally by mail. This means that all registered voters eligible to vote in this election will have a ballot mailed to them automatically at the address in their voter registration record. Ballots should arrive in mid-April. Your ballot will come with a postage-prepaid return envelope, so you do not need to attach stamps to return your voted ballot. But be sure to sign the oath on the back of the return envelope after you have placed your ballot inside the envelope and sealed it. Remember, your ballot must be postmarked on or before April 28, 2020.
If you are not sure whether you are registered, or at what address, you can check your status using the Voter Lookup tool on the State Board of Elections website. If you would like to register to vote, would like your ballot mailed to a different address than the one in your voter registration record, or would like a replacement ballot (because you never received your ballot or made a mistake in marking your ballot), you can submit a request using the Voter Registration and Absentee Ballot Request tool on the State Board of Elections website. You can also call 410-396-1444 or email to [email protected] for more information. Your request must be received by April 21, 2020, for ballots sent by mail to a different address, or by April 24, 2020, for ballots sent electronically.
Limited in-person voting will also be available on April 28, 2020, but this is intended for use by voters who are unable to return their mailed ballots or who never received their ballots. Due to the risk posed by COVID-19, please do not use the in-person voting center if you are able to mark and return your ballot by mail or at a ballot drop-off location. The in-person voting center for Baltimore City voters in the 7th Congressional District is located at Edmondson High School, 501 N. Athol Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21229. The in-person voting center will be open on April 28, 2020 only, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
There will also be two ballot drop-off boxes for Baltimore City voters in the 7th Congressional District once the boxes are delivered. One box will be located in the parking lot across Athol Avenue from Edmondson High School and the other box will be located outside the Baltimore City Board of Elections office at 417 E Fayette Street, Benton Office Building, Baltimore, MD 21202 . The ballot drop-off boxes will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. once they are delivered. Please check our website and the Maryland State Board of Elections website regularly for updates.
Make sure your ballot is postmarked on or before April 28, 2020!
