[ARCHIVED] Frederick County Ballots Mailed for June 2, 2020 Presidential Primary Election Ballot

Vote by Mail

Frederick County wants you to Vote Safe-Vote at Home-Vote by Mail.  Registered and eligible voters will automatically receive a primary election ballot in the mail. There was a delay in the post office delivery of many ballots to Frederick County voters from the Maryland State Board of Elections.  You should receive your ballot no later than next week.  Voters who have not received their ballot by Tuesday, May 19, should notify our office.

Due to the difficulty in making a late date change on the ballot, the date printed at the top of the ballot is incorrect.  The date on the ballot is the original date for the primary election, April 28.  The changed date for the election does not affect how your ballot is counted.

You must be registered with the Democratic or Republican parties to vote for President and most other contests in the June 2nd Primary Election. If you are not registered with either party, you’ll only be eligible to vote for Board of Education candidates. You can check your registration status and party registration at The deadline to update your party affiliation, address or to register to vote is Wednesday May 27, 2020.

If you would like your ballot delivered to you electronically or want your ballot mailed to a different address, please submit a request. You can submit a request online or via paper form. If you use a paper form, read the instructions, enter the required information, print the form, sign it, and return it to your local board of elections. You can return it by mail, fax, or email (scanned as attachment).
