To Change your Name or Address
You can use the Voter Registration Application mentioned above to change your name and address, or you can call our office and we will send you a form to change your name or address. We must have your signature on the form before we can make any changes to your registration.
 
How do I verify my registration?
You are considered a registered voter when you receive your Voter Notification Card from your local board of elections. If you do not receive your card three weeks after you submit an application, you should contact our office.
 
You can verify your registration online at https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/votersearch. Registration is permanent as long as you continue to live in Maryland and keep your name and address current with your local board of elections. You do not have to re-register when you move within the State, but you must keep your address current.
