The Frederick Board of Elections announced that the 2020 Primary Election will be delayed until Tuesday, June 2, 2020. The delay is in response to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s proclamation today to provide the state additional time to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and allows local boards of elections and election workers to implement public health safeguards for the primary election.
The Frederick County Board of Elections concurs with this statement released by the Maryland State Board of Elections:
“The Maryland State Board of Elections fully supports the actions taken by Governor Hogan today. Our highest priority is to deliver a safe election environment for voters and election workers while also ensuring the fundamental right to vote. The actions announced today are critical to fulfilling that goal. Effective immediately, SBE and Maryland’s local boards of elections are implementing the requirements set forth by Governor Hogan for the primary election.”
