Political district boundaries have changed!  These boundaries are adjusted every ten years, based on how the population changes.  The new boundaries help to make sure that the people in each district are equally represented.  These changes may affect your districts, election day polling place, and elected officials.  Click on the interactive Election Districts and Precincts map below to find out what legislative district you are in and where your Election Day precinct is.

Closed Primary

Maryland has a closed primary, which means that members of a political party may only vote the ballot created for their party.  In this Primary Election, there is only a Democratic ballot and a Republican ballot.  For you 23,000+ Washington County voters not registered with either the Democratic or Republican parties, you do not have a ballot.  But don't worry, you can still vote in the Gubernatorial General Election on Tuesday, November 8th!

In Person Voting

Election Day

We are back to our 49 Precinct Polling Places in 2022!  Primary Election Day is Tuesday, July 19, 2022, from 7 am to 8 pm.  If you vote on Election Day, you must go to your assigned polling place to vote a regular ballot.  If you go to any other polling place on Election Day,  you will be required to vote a provisional ballot.  Go to Voter Services, type in your name, date of birth and zip code, and click on the "Voting Center Information" to see what your assigned polling place is and precinct information.
