Maryland State Board of Elections announces new Baltimore-area ballot drop-off locations

BALTIMORE, MD—The Maryland State Board of Elections on Wednesday announced that it would expand the number of ballot drop off locations available in the Baltimore area for the June 2 presidential primary and will consider adding new in-person voting centers when the Board convenes on Wednesday afternoon.

The Board also announced it will launch a full review of its ballot mailing vendor’s performance immediately after the June 2 election.

“We are extremely disappointed that our ballot mailing vendor failed to deliver ballots on schedule and failed to notify us about their delay,”said Maryland Administrator of Elections Linda Lamone. “We will conduct a thorough review of their performance after the election. Despite this delay, ballots are being delivered daily to eligible voter addresses on file in Baltimore and Maryland. We are confident eligible voters will receive their ballots in time to cast their votes in the June 2 primary.”

To mail in their ballot, voters simply need to fill out their ballot, sign the oath on the envelope, and place it back in the mail. Voters should sign only the oath on the outside of the envelope but not the ballot itself.

There is no postage required to submit a ballot. The return ballot must be postmarked no later than June 2, but can be mailed at anytime before election day. The Board also announced it ordered an additional 10 ballot drop off boxes for Baltimore and will consider opening new in-person voting centers for Election Day.

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, voting for the June 2 election is being conducted primarily by mail, with limited locations to submit completed ballots at designated drop-off locations or to vote in-person on election day. The novel coronavirus pandemic resulted in the date of the Primary being postponed from April 28.

While mail-in ballots display the original Primary date of April 28, the ballots are in fact valid for the June 2 election. Voters should be aware these are official ballots that will record actual votes. They are not sample ballots. Votes cast by mail remain anonymous.

The same technology and equipment used for in-person voting is utilized to count mail-in ballots. Officials say the equipment is not connected to the Internet or any other database.
