Deadline for Registering to Vote
Which Offices Can I Vote For in the Primary?
Because Maryland uses a closed primary system, you must be a registered Republican or Democrat to vote for candidates other than non-partisan Board of Education offices. Unaffiliated, Green, and Libertarian party voters can vote only for the nonpartisan Board of Education offices. In the November general election, all registered voters may vote for any candidate or ballot issue.
