Maryland 2024 Primary Election Day Information

Today, Maryland is holding primary elections for both the Democratic and Republican parties. Each party will conduct three primary events, selecting candidates for the upcoming general elections. Registered voters affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican Party are eligible to participate in their respective primaries.

To vote in Maryland's primaries today, ensure you meet the following requirements:

  • Registration: You must be a registered voter. Check your registration status here.

  • Party Affiliation: You must be affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican Party to vote in their respective primaries.

  • Identification: If this is your first time voting or if you need to verify your identity, bring a valid form of ID.

  • Polling Location: You must vote at your designated polling place, which you can find on your ballot that was mailed to you or on Maryland's official elections page.

You can use the Maryland Board of Elections "Voter Lookup" page to do several things related to voting: check your voter registration status, request a new voter registration card, find your voting location and districts, locate your local board of elections, track the status of your mail-in or provisional ballot, and view your sample ballot. Just enter your first name, last name, date of birth, and the 5-digit zip code of your Maryland address to get started.

We should note that the 2024 Primary Election ballots have been certified by the State Board of Elections for various counties and cities in Maryland. The General Election on November 5, 2024, will feature a statewide ballot question from the 2023 Legislative Session, with the possibility of additional questions from the 2024 Session. Local ballot questions may also be added later. The Secretary of State will finalize the statewide ballot question language by August 2, 2024. You can find more details and links on our website, including information about the Right to Reproductive Freedom legislation. CLPA will provide an update on those questions as well as a profile of candidates as we get close to Election Day.
