Maryland Board of Elections is expected to begin mailing absentee ballot applications to registered voters on August 24.
It’s part of a response to a lack of election judges for the general election this fall. That, despite calls from Gov. Larry Hogan to keep all polling sites open on November 3rd.

The BOE said registered voters should have those applications by August 31.
As far as election judges go, the governor’s office offered state workers 16 hours of administrative leave to serve as election judges. More than 2,500 state works have signed up.
The BOE still has around 10,000 vacancies to fill. If interested, you can sign up here.
