Change of Address

What should I do if I moved since the last election?

Give the local board of elections where you currently live your new address information. You can use the voter registration application to make the change, or you can submit in writing your new address. You can also use the voter registration application to make a name or party affiliation change.

If you changed your address with MVA, the change should have been sent to your local board of elections unless you specifically stated that you did not want your address changed for voter registration purposes. You can verify that your address has been updated by using the voter look-up website. If you cannot find your information by entering the zip code of your new address, try entering the zip code of your former address. If you find your information using your former address information, it means that your change of address has not been processed. Please contact your local board of elections or submit a voter registration application with your new information.

If you do not receive a Voter Notification Card with your new address and polling place information within three to four weeks, contact the local board of elections where you now live to ensure that your records are up-to-date.

Is there a deadline to submit my new address information?

Yes. To update your address before the next election, please use Maryland's Online Voter Registration System (OLVR) or submit a voter registration application or written notice with your new address at least 21 days before the election. If you submit the information after this date, the change cannot be made until after the election and you will have to vote a provisional ballot.
