Canvass Information

Results for the June 2, 2020 Presidential Primary Election

 

 Notice Regarding Coronavirus

On 17 March, the Maryland State Board of Elections released a press statement (PDF) about changes to the upcoming elections. For the latest updates, visit the Maryland State Board of Elections website. View the Voter Guide released by the State Board of Elections.

Mail-in Ballots

To slow the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Presidential Primary will be conducted primarily by mail. Look for a ballot in the mail over the next 2 weeks. Vote your ballot, sign the oath and return your voted ballot by mail. The envelope is postage paid, so you won’t need a stamp! Make sure your ballot is postmarked on or before June 2, 2020.

Register to vote or ensure your voter registration is updated with your current information by visiting the State Board Website at elections.maryland.gov. The close of voter registration is May 27, 2020. After receiving your ballot, you can vote your ballot, sign the oath then return your voted ballot by mail. You will not need a stamp to return your ballot—the envelope will already have postage on it.

Challenging a Ballot Remotely

The Board review of ballots will take place at least once a week at 3:00 pm during the canvass periods as listed below. The public may challenge a ballot during this time. Although uncommon, the Board of Elections recognizes the need to still have this process available despite the remote nature of this canvass.

The public will have visual/audio confirmation of the canvassing process as well as all discussions and the voting results of the Board on any ballot. The public may challenge a Board decision on the audio portion of the system the Board of Elections has selected to carry out this process. The challenger must immediately announce that he/she would like to challenge the ballot. The challenger will then scan a signed copy of the Canvass Challenge Form (Canvass Challenge Form)  and email it to jeri.cook@maryland.gov in PDF format. (Note: All ballots that are given an “Accepted” disposition by the Board will be placed into batches that will not be run through scanners until the end of each day to account for any lag in video or audio or reception of a challenge.) Once the Challenge Form has been received, the Board will immediately reevaluate the ballot that has been challenged. The Challenge review will take place with the ballot on video and the review on audio. The Board’s decision will be conveyed both on the audio and in a reply email to the challenger.

Canvass Information – *Tentative Dates* – The dates of canvassing may change if not enough ballots are received the previous day.
