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 who your elected officials are.  You can also see 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 can change your party affiliation anytime until 5:00PM, June 28, 2022 for in-person applications, or you have until 11:59PM, June 28, 2022 if you change your affiliation online.  Click on VOTER REGISTRATION to change your party affiliation.

In Person Voting

Election Day

We are back to our 49 Precinct Polling Places in 2022!  This means that 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.  You will also see other important information related to you on Voter Services.
